Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park

Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park

The largest trees in the world. We had just enough time to see the second on the list.


They are enormous.


The General Grant tree is over 28 feet wide at the base, 268 feet tall, and is estimated to be more than 1,600 years old.


They are so big that you can walk through them standing up.




This is the only place in the world these trees grow. They enjoy the relatively wet climate and depend on frequent small fires for their survival. They bare the scars of these fires sometimes all the way to the top.





All images were shot on KODAK EKTACHROME E100 VS Color Reversal Slide Film.
