|Subject: Re: Yosemite National Park, California|
Where will you be in Northern California?
Yosemite will be cold and quite likely snowy at that time of year. The
best news is that there should be a minimum of crowds and the hotels will
be cheaper. In Yosemite there are giant Sequoia Trees and these trees
( a variety of Redwood) are the biggest ( that is widest) trees on earth.
They are among the oldest living things on earth. They are related to
the Coastal Redwoods but differ in size and look : these Redwoods are
fatter but shorter than their Coastal cousins.
The Ave of the Giants is an amazing place to visit especially if you have
never seen a coastal Redwood. The Ave of the Giants is located near Garberville
off Highway 101. further up that highway is Eureka and more Redwood Parks
including Redwood National Park ( one of the least visited of our National
Parks) and various other Redwood state parks. You can easily hike to the
tallest tree on earth, or find an amazing amount of variety in the rainforest
that the redwoods live in. Because they are coastal, the weather is always
fairly temperate but do expect fog . There is nothing more astounding
then these trees.....
If i can be of more assistance please let me know,
