sequoia national park, ca


The Sequoia National Park is yet another amazing place in America where Nature thrives. The sequoias themselves are astonishing. Their bark is an unusual reddish brown colour and they're so tall you can barely see where they end. Some of the largest trees' branches alone would have made fairly large trees. Photos don't do them justice. I borrowed a panorama photograph but even so, it's a lot more impressive to see all of this live. For a sense of scale, the fifth picture was taken inside a dead sequoia.

By the end of the day we were all exhausted, but my father and I had one last challenge to take on: the Moro Rock trail. We climbed the last 100m to the top of the dome to see the most beautiful sights of the day.
