The Tuolumne Grove of Giant Sequoias is one of three sequoia groves in the
park. This one isn't quite as famous, or as large, as Mariposa Grove, but
it was a very pleasant walk through the woods with all of the dogwood trees
As we were heading down into the grove, we came upon this tree growing out
of a spiral root. Everybody's got to be different, I guess...
It seems as though every grove has a Tunnel Tree, and this one is no exception.
Dave illustrates that it really is high enough to admit the horse-drawn wagons
that first started going through it in 1878. (Fortunately for the hikers,
horse-drawn wagons are no longer allowed, so you don't need to watch your
feet quite so much.)
