After Yosemite we stopped in Fresno for the night and ate pizza from Little Caesars. The next day we had decided that instead of just heading down the freeway, we would take a days detour into the Sequoia state park to see the General Sherman tree - the most massive living organism on Earth. It is 84 meters high, and weighs in at 2100 tons. At its base it is 7.7 meters across and is thought to be nearly 3000 years old. Having already seen some sequoias, we were keen ...

Sequoias grow between 5,000 and 7,000 feet of elevation, and as we negotiated the hairpin turns from the park down to the central valley of California, we watched first the sequoias and then the pines disappear.

These differ from the coastal redwoods in that they are much larger around whereas the redwoods are taller.. We then moved down to General Sherman ...
