While we were there, we went through Muir Woods. I highly recommend doing this as it was VERY beautiful and peaceful to walk among the giant redwood trees.<br><br>We bought a Sequoia tree to plant in our yard! our neighbors will love us in...oh...100 years. <br><br><br><br><br><br><br>my beer blog

How long until you can cut one of those neato car-driving holes through its trunk?<br><br> <br><br>Seriously, I think it'd be cool to plant and conserve 100s of acres (or more) of them somewhere in the Appalachians, the Adirondacks...somewhere in the East.<br><br>
Heh..man, I want to plant a whole grove of these! Redwoods need temps above 30 degrees, so we went with the Sequoia. If it dies, they'll replace it free.<br><br>Could you imagine having a yard like this?! <br><br><br><br>my beer blog

Geez, they are so breathtakingly majestic.<br><br>Economic feasibility aside, I just can't fathom how any company would want to have the blood of death of a forest full of them (or giant redwoods, for that matter) on their hands.<br><br>
Very neat, John. A friend and I camped out in Sequoia National Park a long long time ago--one of the best camping experiences I've ever had. Up north the redwoods are astonishing. We drove up the coastal highway and I remember just how enormous those trees were. Up just south of Crescent City we stayed at the second best camping experience I've ever had, on a coastal camp ground that was just breathtaking.<br><br>

Next trip to CA will include a trip to see the giant sequoia's.<br><br>Forget Sequoias. Next trip out check out Big Sur... Point Lobos.... The entrance to the park is 3 miles from Carmel on Hwy 1.<br><br>[color:blue]About the park<br>Deriving its name from the offshore rocks at Punta de los Lobos Marinos, Point of the Sea Wolves, where the sound of the sea lions carries inland, the reserve has often been called "the crown jewel of the State Park System." Point Lobos has offered many things to millions of people who have visited it over the years. <br><br>Point Lobos State Reserve is outstanding for sightseeing, photography, painting, nature study, picnicking, SCUBA diving, and jogging.
