This visit was one I dreamed of when I was very young.   There was always something mysterious about these trees.  They live for thousands of years which to my young mind was an eternity.
We visited the Sequoia National Park in August of 2017.  From the park entrance, there is a 20 or so mile ride up a serpentine road climbing over 12,000 feet in elevation.
As we began our hike, the first thing I noticed was a quiet reverence as you walk through the groves. The interior of this sequoia was gutted by a fire but the tree still grows and survives.  I think the picture sums up my feelings and awe as I stood in the heart of this magnificent tree.  Words do not come close.  Just unforgettable.
