Although two separate national parks, they seem to blend into one another. Generally, Sequoia is the bigger draw, with the largest trees in the world. Sequoias are the thick ones; Redwoods are the tall ones and can be found in northern California. One of the main attractions is the log tunnel. An arch big enough for a car to drive through has been carved into a fallen sequoia. It's interesting for the moment, and a good photo op, but it's also a very short moment, as the tree is only a few feet deep. Smile and take a picture to show your friends and family. My favorite section of this park involved climbing a never-ending set of stairs that wrapped around a rock. Jutting out into the canyon, the offered view was spectacular.
