#50 Can't see the forest for the trees...

Trying to catch up on some recent pictures and new-to-me things... These are a few snaps I took of the giant Sequoias while hiking around in the Mariposa Grove last month in Yosemite National Park, California. Very impressive trees, some around 2000 years old!

Well worth the visit, but a bit overcrowded for my taste (late September) -- I can only imagine what its like at the peak of the summer season. Such is the nature of major national parks and increasing populations, I'm afraid to say...

[Speaking of trees, for amusing insights on the pack hunting, predator/prey relationship between falling trees and goats, check out Tree Ocean's recent post Busy Stuff.]
