Sequoia National Park Stories and Tips

The Magnificent Sequoia Trees

Giant Forest Photo, Sequoia National Park, California

It is simply amazing to be standing right next to some of the world’s largest trees and realize that they have been here for thousands of years. And that’s just the ones you’re standing next to!

If you ever want to feel like you’re truly walking in the Land of the Lost, then take an aimless stroll under the giant sequoia trees. You’ll half expect to see a dinosaur peek around one of them to glance at you as you would an ant, and continue stretching his neck to sniff the sequoia disappearing into the sky.

The giant sequoias can reach a height of 311 feet and can live for 3,200 years! The bark that protects these trees can be 31 inches thick!
