North Grove Loop, General Grant Grove, Sequoia National Park, California USA in California
The General Grant Grove is located near the border of Kings Canyon National Park and Sequoia National Park. The Grove contains the General Grant Tree, one of the largest in the Park. The North Grove Loop Trail winds through a beautiful rocky setting for some grand sequoias. The rounded granite boulders are a contrast to the huge trunks of the giant trees. At the time of this panorama, the forest was exceptionally dry but even though there had been little rain, the small streams were still running from springs in the area. The panorama shows the variety of trees that grow, all of which are overshadowed by the giant sequoias. This is truly one of nature’s most spectacular areas and certainly worth the visit. The big trees grow only in certain areas and are separated by large stretches of heavy forest. The scarcity of the trees is not all natural since in the early years of California history, they were heavily logged.
