... standing in front of it look like ants. General Sherman isn't the tallest or widest but it has the greatest volume - over 52000 cubic feet of wood inside. If you filled that space with water, you would have enough water for a bath a day for 27 years! I learned that the parks actually set fire to some of the forests in order to protect the sequoia trees.

... rock climbing and climbing the Eiffel Tower. A white granite outcrop with great views that had a staircase put up the side in the 1920s. Nearest experience to this was climbing Uluru before that was banned.

... up the canyon was just as spectacular as the day before. We got our National Park passports stamped at the visitor centre and then took another road down to the Lodgepole Campground in Sequoia which was very close to The Giant Forest a hub and home for Sequoiadendron giganteum – giant sequoia trees.
Named in 1875 by John Muir, The Giant Forest is a stand of more than 8,000 colossal sequoia specimens ...
