Magnificent Dogwoods: Spring Splendor in the Park

2021-06-11T14:38:22-07:00

Hello. I’m a magnificent dogwood tree, and I’m just starting to bloom! Come on up to the park, and you’ll find me along the North Grove trail. I don’t know why giant sequoias get all the glory here at the park, because I’m far flashier and four-seasons showy! I create dazzling white blooms in April [...]

Big Trees Tours that Never Stopped During the Pandemic

2021-05-06T07:09:56-07:00

Hello, Perhaps you’ve seen me along the trail in the North Grove, just past the Visitor Center. I’m a young giant sequoia, maybe just 400-500 years old, and not too tall yet. No one ever thought to give me a name, but Ranger Jenny has made me famous among thousands of schoolchildren.   I used [...]

2021-04-03T08:53:52-07:00

Hello. Perhaps you’ve heard of me. My name is the Smith Cabin Tree and I’m one of the 1,000 giant sequoias in the South Grove. I’m the second largest giant sequoia in the area, and only the Agassiz Tree is larger. I’m not marked by any sign and no trail comes my way. I earned [...]

The Boy Who Watered the Trees

2021-01-18T07:41:10-08:00

Hello, Perhaps you know me. My name is the Railroad Tree, and I’m a giant sequoia who stands near Beaver Creek, along the Bradley Grove Trail.  I’m surrounded by over a hundred young sequoias – thanks to a logging company, the Bradley family, and the boy who watered trees. This is my story. For over [...]

2021 – A New Year Begins

2021-01-18T07:43:12-08:00

In 2020, people flocked to the park  during the challenging and difficult year. Perhaps because our minds are quieted by wonder. The calming effect of the natural world gives us time to pause and reflect. Joy and hope are natural companions, and you can almost hear the big trees whispering assurances that our [...]
