HUGE trees…some of the largest in the world. Seriously unreal…they look a little bit fake actually. These giant Sequoias take thousands of years to grow to this size and apparently never die of old age. They only die once they fall. Just imagine what these trees have seen in their lifetimes. In 1891, the Mark Twain Stump (a 1700 year old tree) was cut down by two men in thirteen days and they transported a cross section of the trunk to the East Coast where people refused to believe it was real. With these two parks being in our own backyard, it was a definite must see stop on our way toward the Grand Canyon. - Jonathan
