General Sherman Tree & Other Scenery (Part 9) - Sequoia & King's Canyon NP (2014)

I recently took a trip to Sequoia and King's Canyon National Park (the two parks are connected). I had a great time photographing many scenery and enjoying the beauty of nature both inside the two national parks and out in Sequoia National Forest. Through this chain of blog posts, I will be showing photos of natural scenery, mountains, meadows, forests, wildlife, and the wonderful trees of the parks. I will also be giving some travel advice into the park as I know some of you viewers are probably looking at this to try to plan a trip to the parks. In these parks, is one of the world's largest species of trees, the Giant Sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum). I will also have a few photos of the world's most massive tree the General Sherman Tree in blog posts to come. I hope you enjoy this chain of blog posts!

Today I finish up with my photos from day two. The photos are shot in both Sequoia National Park and Sequoia National Forest. I have photos of the General Sherman Tree, and random scenery along Generals Highway (SR-198). These are the last of my photos from Sequoia National Park.

Here is a photo of the General Sherman Tree which is a Giant Sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum). While this is not the tallest tree out there, this is the world's most massive tree.

Here is a photo of Halstead Meadow which is right on the side of Generals Highway (SR-198). Remember, just because there is no sign that says you can't walk on the meadow, doesn't mean you can! Please do not walk on the meadow as it is still illegal, and it damages the plants and animals that thrive there.
