Kings Canyon and Trees

July 19, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

After an early breakfast we are on the road again. Taking the Kings Canyon Scenic byway - a meandering road with hairpin turns - great road to drive a few people on the slow side but with 460+ horses they were easy to pass. Meeting a lot of folks who notice our  NH plates and wish us a safe trip. I have never seen a Redwood except on TV. The first time we saw one we stopped they take your breath away with the stature and age, and the smell is so deep and luxurious they really are impressive. We visited the General Grant Tree walking amidst these nobel sentinels their bark is soft and light to the touch.

Next onto General Sherman a short .5 mile hike down a path where there were a few more people. Sherman has branches that are thicker than any tree in my backyard - any tree in our town its insane - in one year Sherman gains more bark than any other tree.
