If you have never seen them. This video puts it into perspective. Add it to your bucket list. I have never seen this particular tree though, but have seen others

I've been to Muir Woods and Yosemite. Those trees are damn impressive.

In the navy I was stationed 90 minutes from Sequoia National Park so I hiked there frequently. They had a tree with the base hollowed out with a road going through it. So you drove through the tree whenever you went. Sequoias are massive.

I had this notion that I was immune to poison ivy or oak or whatever because I'd never caught it. Wrong. I caught something there that effectively took me out for a couple of weeks. Never hiked in shorts again.

I've spent some time in CA in AZ and the poison oak out there is different there. I never caught it, but a few folks I know did and it required going on steroids to get over.
