@ Calaveras Big Trees State Park
"No other tree combines such massiveness of trunk with such height.... Spruces and pines of majestic port standing around look like saplings.... They look up, but the Sequoias look—not down but out, indifferent to all that is transpiring below them. They see only the limitless reaches of the eternal sky..."
~Julia Ellen Rogers, “The Big Tree and the Redwood,” 1905
