    Among the largest trees in the world and certainly the oldest, makes one feel insignificant in their presence. Want to feel small and insignificant, too... see the Giant Sequoias. They are beautiful and awe inspiring to witness their majesty.

    Mariposa Grove

    by joanj Updated Sep 29, 2004
    Up in Mariposa Grove

    When visiting Yosemite, do take the tram up to the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias, and Redwoods.. Imposing huge trees, wonderful for photo's.

    Unfortunately if you go later than mid October, it is closed for 6 months, due to weather conditions. Opening again in May.

    This split tree was so huge I was unable to get the top of it in the picture.

    Grizzly Giant

    by mht_in_la Updated Oct 30, 2003
    Grizzly Giant

    Grizzly Giant is estimated at 2,700 years of age. Among the huge sequoias of Mariposa Grove, it stands out like a giant. The most distict feature of Grizzly Giant is its huge limbs. Some of its limbs are more than 7 feet in diameter. Just its limbs are thicker than most sequoias in the Grove.

    Here you can see the giant Sequoia trees in all their glory without having to go as far north as the Red Wood forest. Stand at the base of a tree and just look up, up, up………

    This isn't the easiest walk on the way back up but its worth it to see the trees, I'm not a big nature lover but this is lovely and if your going o Yosemite it would be a shame to go and not see them
