I really have a thing for majestic trees. I absolutely enjoyed our family's vacation north of San Francisco to the Muir Woods just last year. Those trees are large, of course, but their real claim to fame is their height. Still on the bucket list for the Powells are the big, fat, giant sequoias!
Visit the official page of the Sequoia National Forest to learn even more facts like these:
1. The Giant Sequoias really are the world's largest trees.
2. This tree only grows naturally in a narrow 60-mile band of mixed conifer forest on the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in California.
I think I have been drawn to the beauty and mystery of trees since my mom introduced me to this poem as a young girl. Enjoy!
