Day 26 - Thursday 29 October – Sequoia National Park

1029MoroRock.jpgWe headed up to the mountains today – going up from around 400m to 2,700m at the highest point. You can see me looking out to Moro Rock, one of the main attractions. It’s sunny in the picture, but by the time we got up there to climb up it was starting to get covered by cloud.

1029FromMoroRock.jpgBut Paddy and I still climbed it and he took my picture with the Sierra Nevada peaks in the background.

1029GeneralSherman.jpgWe had some lovely walks around the Great Forest which is full of enormous sequoias – the largest trees in the world. You can see me here looking up at General Sherman, the largest tree in the world by volume, with a height of 83.8 meters (275 ft), a diameter of 7.7 m (25 ft), an estimated bole volume of 1,487 m3 (52,513 cu ft), and an estimated age of 2,300–2,700 years. Awe inspiring!
