Winding, twisting curving, higher we rise
Searching for the majestic tree giants
We round the bend and in front of our eyes
A land of sequoias stand defiant
Thousands of year grown from one tiny seed
Five of the world’s largest ten trees are here
1890 national park decreed
Discovered by naturalist John Muir
Muir’s famous quote: "In every walk with
Nature one receives far more than he seeks."
In Sequoia you see that is no myth
Black bears, skunks, gray foxes, cascading creeks
Massive Sequoia trees rise from the ground
In this landscape nature’s beauty abounds
It's hard to fathom numbers that size with our familiarity to the average tree. To only way to fully appreciate the magnitude of The General Sherman, and the other Giant Sequoias in the park, is to see them for yourself.
What's your favorite National Park? Have you been to Sequoia? We went to Yosemite, too. I'll share about that on Wednesday.
