Sequoia National Park

After we left Yosemite, we decided to head to the park famous for its Giant Sequoia trees, including the General Sherman tree, the largest tree on Earth. The General Sherman tree grows in the Giant Forest, which contains five out of the ten largest trees in the world, in terms of wood volume.

One last stop before we leave was to climb to the top of Moro Rock.  It is a large granite dome found in the Giant Forest area.
You take a quarter-mile trail to the site then climb nearly 400 stone steps to the top of the rock (6,725-foot elevation).
We made it!
