Icon of the gilded age, the National Parks Service owns and operates this grand country cottage. We toured there last week.
The biggest of these trees are 3000 years old, saplings when David took down Goliath. How big are they? A better question might be, “how small are you?”
Imagine the biggest tree near you. A really big one, like a 200-year-old oak or an especially wide sycamore. Then take a Ken doll or a Barbie doll and put it down next to it. That’s you next to a giant sequoia.
