Sacred Sequoia

Sequoia

I came across a Sequoia tree today in the Queenstown Gardens. It’s a child in comparison to the largest in California, yet towered over any trees around. It’s hard to imagine Sequoias being cut down at all, let alone used for things like fence posts and match sticks. They often were cut just to prove their existence. One of the first discovered, that stood the test of time for 1300 years, was cut down by five men and the stump used as a dance floor for 32 people. I’m thankful times have changed and the remaining giants preserved. I’m going to try and revisit Sequoia National Park on my return home across the U.S.A. this spring. It’s truly unique among other parks in the world.

    Seven or eight Sheri’s can line up next to the trunk and still not hide it.

  2. Beautiful! Found your blog via Pinterest today and I’m so happy I did — love your photography. I’m not even exaggerating when I say that if I could choose only one more place to visit in my life, it would be the Sequoia National Park in Cali. Also planning a trip there when I’m back home in NC this summer!

    • Katie, you can’t go wrong visiting that magnificent place. I can now say I’ve been around the world and Sequoia is something truly unique. There’s nothing else like it. I hope your experience is pure magic when you are there! I couldn’t stop looking up! Thanks so much for the sweet comment.
