Another Warning - !

The Giant Sequois' tiny pinecones


The Giant Sequoia Park was so beautiful! This is a separate entry for the photos we took of the Giants.

In the pictures, if David is out on a ledge it is just another case of him being a kid again - He had to climb rocks, he had to walk down boulders, he had to walk out to the edge, etc. I refused to look - Connie would take his picture.

The group of the hollow Sequoias was fascinating. Ron, then David, banged flat-handed on the trees, declaring them 'hollow' - Boom, boom, boom -

When David walked through the trunk he found the philosopher on the other side. The boy did not break his meditation stance... (Reminds us of my cousin, Glenn.)
