|Look at the difference in size between the car and Giant Sequoia!|
I have seen photos of this tree, but unless you see it next to something like the car below, it is really hard to grasp how large these trees are. I also didn't realize that there are so many of them and in 3 groves.
We took a narrated tram ride around the grove which took about 2 hours. We also had time to enjoy a little hiking. I enjoying the colors in the grove. I love the deep, rich reddish brown and the fresh greens in the trees. I know I will be incorporation those colors in some future BayMoonDesign jewelry and cards.
I also noticed the different textures in the trees. Some trees showed there age with missing chunks. Others showed where they were charred by fire.
