There's something mythic about these
trees that words just can't quite grasp.
You hear about how big they are,
and you see photos, but then when you stand right next to them... wow.
This provided a nice diversion as we
left the Yosemite Valley on our drive over to the Log Cabin Wilderness
Camp. It was a little more of a walk than I think we expected,
especially since we weren't quite yet used to the high altitude and the
dry air. Even so, it was worth it to see trees that are
thousands of year old!
It's good to see that somebody had the
foresight to keep them around, and not turn them all into coffee tables.
