It’s hard to photograph redwoods.

Here is a time line concerning the oldest living tree, Giant Sequoia “Grizzly”, presently growing in Great Sequoia National Monument.  

“Grizzly” and other Giant Sequoias are impressive, standing as tall as the Statue of Liberty (305 feet) and having diameters of greater than 35 feet.

 

Take a look at history through the lives of these 3500 year olds!
