General Sherman

We had a WONDERFUL time in the Giant Forest of the Sequoia National Park today. The trees were HUGE! After several miles of winding roads, we were able to park and then hike down to the biggest tree (by volume) in the world -- "The General Sherman". It was awesome! The tree is 2,200 years old and is 275 feet tall. The base of the tree has a circumference of 102 feet. Just amazing. It was great weather and not too crowded. We're pretty tired and ready to relax, BUT I did get a card reader to upload our pictures. Yeah!!
