  • Visit the Valley of the giant sequoias, which are the largest trees in the world, taller and older. There are three little Woods Sequoiadendron giganteum, the Mariposa Grove (with 200 trees), the Tuolumne Grove (with 25 trees) and the Merced Grove (with 20 trees). Of these woods, that we had the easiest access was the Mariposa Grove. However, this area of the Park is closed until the summer of 2017 for deploying a restoration project. Change in access, trails etc.

  • Once upon a time in one of the tv shows I heard that sekvojjam need a fire, so they can reproduce. It seemed incredible, but here I saw firsthand that these giant trees from fire did not die, but merely lightly char. Only burn underbrush, which would have prevented new seedlings. It's amazing!

  • Such "nurseries" we met in Monterey (but there were Cypress), and now in the Valley of Josimiti. But unlike the coast here is not the creation of human hands, and the creation of nature. It and greater. Regret that lack of time prevented us visit and Sequoia Park with trees, but also local experiences in General.
