Greetings Petitparis, Thanks for visiting the Giant Sequoias, the are wonderful trees in a very peaceful place. I was able to earn two lift tickets a weekend as well as gas money and food money. So winters skiing in college were fun. That seems so long ago. I am sure you will learn the guitar quickly and be making beautiful music and writing your own songs in no time at all. Enjoy the art of it. Cheers, Rich

Hello Richard, fascinating place and marvellous trees. They look so big and majestic, it must be a magnificent experiment to walk here, touch these giants, and feel their power... Great shot of this wonderful beauty, like 17! Best greetings from Southern France, Geneviève

Richard Ryer on November 7, 2011

Greetings Genevieve, Thanks for the visit and the wonderful observations. Many people take the tram to the top of the grove and then walk the trails back down to the bottom. It is a very peaceful experience being among these giants. Cheers, Rich

Hola Rich

¡¡Qué magníficos los árboles de Sequoias!!

Fuimos con mi familia al Sequoia National Park en el invierno de 1992 y nos encantó

Veo que esta Sequoia está en Yosemite.

Hello Richard Ryer, and good day, are you satisfied with the EOS 50D? I have a EOS 30D

Richard Ryer on November 18, 2011

Greetings Karel, I do like the 50D, but I still dream of getting a full size sensor. For now the 50D does just fine. Cheers, Rich
