Thanks, Douglas, for your comments. Are you a fan of 3d photography?

Actually, I believe it is called the Prayer Group, not Parker Group.

Hi Kachina. No, it's the Parker Group. The sign, which is a little difficult to read in this anaglyph, reads: " PARKER GROUP These giant trees were named for the eight members of the Parker Family. Captain James Parker, Troop 8, 4th Cavalry, U.S. Army, was acting superintendent of Sequoia National Park 1893-94". This small grove of Sequoias is on Crescent Meadow Road, not far from the Tunnel Log.
This picture was taken in October, 2001. Here's another view of the same grove, taken a few weeks ago. Enlarged, the sign (at least the name of the grove) is more easily readable.
Thanks for visiting.
