SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK: the General Sherman
Favorite thing: This is the reason for everybody come to this place, even if the rest of the park deserves a visit as well.
This is the:
The sign said (too ignorant not to believe it) "the biggest living being on earth, 3200 years old, 90 meters tall" and God only knows how heavy is it.
SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK
Favorite thing: SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK.
This destination was almost doomed to miss my presence even this year.
My plans were bringing me somewhere else, but flood in the Death Valley rerouted us southwards towards Fresno, so we had the chance to visit this place. Not well connected to the rest of the California roads' web, it forced us to another long deviation, but what we found was worth the miles driven. This is the entrance
Favorite thing: If you visit Northern California, be sure to visit a one of the area's Redwood groves. Sequoia National Park is a great place, or you can also see these giants at Yosemite. Sequoias are part of the Redwood family. Check out the link below for a link for different California destinations to see the trees.
Big Old Trees!
Favorite thing: Sequoia is the second-oldest national park in the United States. It was established in 1890 to protect the Big Trees in Giant Forest, including the General Sherman Tree, the world's largest living thing.
LAND OF BIG TALL TREES
Favorite thing: I was most impressed with the Sequoia National Park and the enormous trees.The ocean and beach is fine but I lived on a ship for 3 1/2 years and the trees appealed to me more.

Favorite thing: The Giant Redwood groves. This monument is so wonderful and contagious. With out a doubt this wonderland spawn such an internal sense of power that one would really be cheating him or her self by not being neglecting to turn a while for this experience
Fondest memory: I was raised in California and know most of it. San Bernardinois my old stamping grounds which is a hub for many POINTS OF INTEREST. I can not brag enough of this GEOGRAPHIC location of this place. The state of affairs socially in this place has alot to be desired but it is PRIMED for some major movement. I pray for this REFUGE I covet your prayers as well . .Can anything good come from NAZARETH?
Favorite thing: I don't mean "big trees", I mean "bigtrees" or Sequoiadendron giganteum or giant redwood trees. These are massive.

Favorite thing: ride your bike down the west coast.
