Mariposa Grove, Yosemite National Park

The Sequoia trees in Mariposa Grove are huge!!!!  Gary and I were there years ago and took the 7 mile tram ride.  We were planning on taking the tram ride again but the $25.50 per person charge was a little to steep for us.  So, we walked the first mile of the walking trail to see the trees known as the Bachelor, Grizzly, and the only remaining Tunnel Tree.  Great day.


Large Sequoia that fell many years ago.  Calvary troops used to ride into this section of the grove and line up in front of this tree to have their troop picture made.


This is the Bachelor tree.


Grizzly tree.  It is as tall as a 19 story building and as wide as a 747.  One of its upper limbs is wider than some of the smaller trees.


Tunnel tree.


We enjoyed watching this cute little guy.
