Giant Sequoia by Phillip M. Burrow

Mariposa Grove is a sequoia grove located near Wawona, California, USA, in the southernmost part of Yosemite National Park. In 1857 Galen Clark and Milton Mann happened upon it and named the grove after Mariposa County, California, where it is located.

Giant Sequoia are, by volume, the largest living things which have ever existed on the planet. A sequoia may live 3000 years, making them among the oldest living things on earth. The oldest trees in Yosemite were seedlings at around 1000 to 1500 BC.

Welcome, my name is Phillip, and I’d like to thank you for visiting my gallery. I live in Birmingham, Alabama, which is located in the southeast region of the United States.

Several years ago I rediscovered my long lost passion, and entered the much cleaner digital world of photography. I enjoy photographing nature, landscapes, and historical subjects.

    gorgeous shot Phillip, and love your reading, sure would have an impact with a person standing next to the tree to show size :)) it looks huge!!

  • Thank you Carolyn. Someone standing next to would have an impact, but they ask that people not walk next to them because the are afraid that it might damage their shallow root system. Still there are others where people are able to stand close. Anyway, let’s just say that they made my once huge Southern Pines very very small.
