Nature in its most glamour. The giant grizzly and the walk between the trees is amazing The fallen tunnel tree is not worth the extra walk. You can't visit Yosemite and not see the mariposa grove

Located close to the south entrance to Yosemite, these trees are about an hour's drive from Yosemite Valley, if already in the park. From the car park there are a number of trails you can follow, details of which, along with their sights are posted...More

While the giant sequoias were beautiful, they are growing among the charred remnants of a "prescribed burn". I undrstand the explanation given, but also think back to a time before man began "taking care" of the forests. They seeem to have gotten along just fine....More

No photo can do these trees justice, and there aren't enough words to convey their grandieur. This is a MUST for anyone traveling to the Yosemite area. The tram trip is good for those who don't want to hike in the 5000-6500 ft. height, and...More

We went there in the beginning of the winter - last week of November. It was snowy but the road was still open - thanks God! I wouldn't miss the grove for nothing, but the road being open helped a lot! The giant sequoias are...More

These are the most beautiful trees you will ever see. The size of these redwoods are unbelievable. When you take a picture of a person next to these trees the person looks like an ant. Awesome to see!
