The General Grant tree is the largest giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) in the General Grant Grove section of Kings Canyon National Park in California and the second largest tree in the world.
We did see the General Sherman Tree which has some wonderful statistics: It is 275 feet tall, has a diameter of 36 feet at its base, a circumference of 102 feet and its largest branch has a diameter of 7 feet, larger than most of the trees east of the Mississippi. It is guesstimated that it is between 2,000-2,500 years old.
The only other thing of interest we saw was Tunnel Rock which was a large dislodged boulder resting on two rocks and creating a tunnel.
Well, I think this is enough for this blog. Next stop Anaheim and Disneyland with our son, David and his wife, Sara.
