A big stump. This hike pays tribute to the folly of humans back when we decided to cut a bunch of Sequoia trees down for sub-par lumber

Favorite Treat:

  • Local Sierra Nevada brews

* Fun fact: General Grant’s trunk is so big, that if you filled it with gas you could drive around the Earth 350 times without refueling
