A memorable Veteran's Day vacation. A sequoia - General Sherman tree - is the largest tree (not tallest) in the world. We are standing in front of the Fallen Monarch. The inside was once used stable for the cavalry, a bar, and even a settlement site at one time. There's a reverential/fantastical feeling around these quiet giants. In the picture on the right, you can see how they dwarf pine trees, at least in width. I would recommend visiting the sequoias, at least once in a life time, to everyone. This park happens to not be too far away from Yosemite, if you wanted to hit both of them at the family reunion time. Details on when that's going to be will be coming shortly.
