Humbled by Skyscraping Sequoias

Like all things mammoth, the giant sequoias are hard to wrap your head around.

You stand next to them, you run your hand over their deeply grooved and spongy bark, you knock on it, and maybe you even try to hug the reddish brown tree.

But nothing begins to make them comprehensible.  How can you take in a tree that is every bit as wide as your kitchen or living room? And so tall that you cannot photograph the whole thing at once.

Humbling, for sure.
