Sequoia National Park

Adværsel-- Masser billeder i denne blog!

I have found one of the 7 Wonders of the least in my opinion. I never dreamed that TREES could be so amazing to look at. Most of these trees are between 600 & 800 years old, but some are almost 3000 years old. The drive there was fantastic and then just walking amongst those trees was the most spiritual experience.... The smells, the sound of the leaves rustling in the wind, the cool air at the forest floor level.... it was AMAZING. If you ever plan a trip to California, you MUST visit the Sequoia National Park! You will not regret it!

Jeg har fandt en af den "7 Wonders of the World"....efter min mening. Jeg vidste ikke at træer kunne være så forbløffende for at kigge på! De fleste er imellem 600-800 år gammel men nogle er næsten 3000 år gammel! For at køre til dem havde en fantastisk udsigt og går omkring trærene var SÅ spiritualistisk.... Det dufter så frisk; man kan høre vinden i bladene; og luften er lidt kold på "det skovs gulv". DET VAR FORBLØFFENDE. Hvis man har chancen for at besøge Sequoia National Park-- GØR DET!

Nature had one more surprise for us..... 30 feet from our path....we saw this..... We took pics, a quick video and then SLOWLY walked back the way we had come!

Natur gav en mere overraskelse til os. 10 metre fra vores spor..... vi så ham. Vi tog billeder og en kort video og dengang vi gik LANGSOMT tilbage på sporet....

My hometown is about an hour drive from the groves, we go up there every time we have someone to visit. It is always a mind-blowing experience to visit the giant trees, no matter how many times you do it. The sequoias' relationship with and dependence upon fire has always fascinated me, they are amazing trees! So glad you were able to visit them. Will you guys be able to visit Yosemite as well?
