I have always been in awe of nature, even when I was young. I've hiked a lot. My parents have taken me hiking since I was 6 years old, and at age 11 I summited Mt. LeConte with them for the first time. (elevation 6,593ft) It was then I really fell in love with the sport.
I've moved across the country twice, I've seen some amazing sights. But nothing so wonderful as the short- less than two mile hike into Big Trees State Park. The giant Sequoias offered me something I've never seen-- they almost feel like left over trees from another time period.... which is essentially what they are! The trees in this grove range from 800-1200 years old.
My favorite photo of the trip- Logan and Kenna gazing up at one of the giants. Incredible work, God... Incredible work.
