Sequoia National Park

Sequoia National Park is home to some big trees. It’s hard to do them justice with a camera because you can’t get far enough away easily to take the picture. I tried with the discontinued Photosynch app but it has poor resolution.

Giant Sequoias grow only in the Sierra Nevada range of California. Their cousins are the coastal redwoods of coastal California. Giant Sequoia can live to an age of 3500 years. Thirty foot diameter near the base and not tapering much (unlike the redwoods). With heights to 311 feet they are shorter than the redwoods which can be 379 feet tall.
