Incredible Places: Mariposa Grove

Lately, I have been cleaning and reorganizing everything.  First I started with was my hard drives. I'm making room for new photos and new memories. During this process, I have been rediscovering pictures never printed or posted.  I thought I would share a few photos from Mariposa Grove in Yosemite National Park this weekend.   We spent three days there on our honeymoon and it was amazing.
Since I was a kid, I have been obsessed with the giant Sequoias. I was constantly taking out library books on them. It was always my dream to see them in person. I just could not imagine being in a forest where the trees were so huge and so old.  It is estimated that some of the Sequoias in Mariposa Grove are over 1800 years old!!

It was so surreal finally being there.
 These little chickarees were everywhere.
 Massive root structure of a fallen sequoia
Just magnificent, these ancient forests

 Two trunks fused together.
 Gorgeous wild flowers everywhere.
 I still cannot get over how massive and ancient these trees are.  
Can you believe, I'm standing next to one of the small ones?
It was truly an incredible place. I hope to get back there soon.

    1. You may not have these trees, but Europe has gorgeous architecture that the US just cannot compete with. I look forward to seeing more of your travels. Thanks Anna, for taking a peek at mine.
