Scale

Sequoia Trunk

In two previous posts (Sequoia National Park and Giant Sequoia Trees), I’ve written about the Giant Sequoia trees in the Sierra Nevada mountains, trying to demonstrate just how large these trees can be.

I’ve shown them with other objects, a building and parked cars, in hopes of providing a reference to relative size of a known object.  This photo shows a good-looking, normal-sized adult male homosapien from Nebraska at the base of a young sequoia tree.

It’s still hard to imagine the true size of these trees.

Thought for the Day:  For Conservatives, seeing is believing; for Liberals, believing is seeing.                                                                                                            George Will
