Big trees. Big roots. Big pine cones.
Last Sunday we went hiking in Mariposa Grove/Giant Sequoias in Yosemite. As a child, Kurt remembers taking a family trip to Yosemite and driving their car through the Wawona Tunnel Tree (photo 6) The tree fell in 1969 after a heavy snow season.
It was a "big" day.

I have been there and I know it is a really lovely place. Thanks for bringing those memories back to me. It is really cool that you have found this old picture. A piece of history....

I love the picture o you in front of the massive root system of the fallen tree. It looks like a giant forest wave about to sweep you out to a sea of trees. Magical.
