General Sherman, Sequoia National Park



The largest tree in the world and generally considered the largest living organism. This imposing redwood is located in the Giant Forest of Sequoia National Park and is believed to be approximately 2200 years old. Click here for a high resolution version of this picture:   (Hi-Res). This picture was taken close to the tree so it is distorted and actually does not show how big General Sherman is compared to Gowri. This next shot I took from much further away to truly show the scale of this giant that is 275 ft high and 25 ft in diameter:   (Click)  (Hi-Res).
