Giant Sequoias

IMG_3538

IMG_3583 On our way back from Yosemite Valley we stopped at the Tuolumne Grove of Giant Sequoias. These super-sized trees are truly magnificent for their size, color, and granduer. If you ever want to feel small stand next to a giant sequoia. The Tuolumne Grove is one of three groves of sequoia trees inside the boundaries of Yosemite National Park.IMG_3544

The wide paved trail is very easy to follow as it winds down through the forest. It is all downhill for one mile from the trail head to the grove.  The trail follows the former Old Big Oak Flat Road which was the original entrance road to the park.IMG_3548

You can imagine the slower paced journey into the park of visitors a century ago through this fire damaged tree. IMG_3558Sequoia trees are one of three types of redwoods and are the largest trees on earth in terms of volume. A mature sequoia will measure up to 280 feet high and 26 feet in diameter. Sequoia trees still living today are as old as 3,000 years old!IMG_3559

We could even stand up as we went into the trunk of this fallen tree.

    I visited the Tuolumne Grove about 2 years ago. It was a great trip along with all the other sites of the Park!

    So If a Giant Sequoia falls in the woods and no one is there, does it make a sound??
