Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park, California

These legendary trees can live over a thousand years and measure up to 280 feet in height with a thirty-foot diameter. Their foot-thick bark is like an armor that protects them from fungi, insects, and even fire.

Yosemite National Park, California

This extraordinary place is legendary for its massive rock monoliths, from which towering waterfalls and streams of crystal-clear water flow. Among its forests are the immense sequoia trees.

Yosemite, My tribute to Ansel Adams

Redwood National and State Parks, California

The redwood trees are similar to the giant sequoias I saw in the mountains, which have a greater circumference and volume. Still, the redwoods living near the coast are the tallest trees in the world.
