In Sequoia National Park

Rise and shine! Sequoia National Park is a long and windy drive, the Giant Forest is at an altitude of 2000m in the Sierra Nevada. This is here only that sequoias grow naturally. It’s earth’s largest tree by volume. The biggest, General Sherman tree, is 83m tall (it’s not the tallest Sequoia), weighs 1385 tons, have a circumference at the ground of 31m and is estimated to be 2200 years old (the oldest Sequoia is 3200 years old). There are taller tree species: the Redwood, the tallest in the world, is further up the California coast and we’ll see it later.

    Hope you two are safe from the bush fires and those beautiful trees are not burnt.
