Soaring into the Sierran sky, the giant sequoias of Yosemite's beloved Mariposa Grove are amongst the largest living things on this planet. Some are nearly 3,000 years old and reach almost 290 feet into the air, rivaling the Statue of Liberty.

Yesterday, as part of my commitment to the "get out in nature" campaign of the David Suzuki Foundation for the month of May, I spent over an hour at my usual park, Pocky Point Park, at the head of the Burrard Inlet. While walking, I noticed something that I do not recall seeing before, but clearly it was there. It was the 6 foot high stump of an ancient tree. I say ancient because is was at least 5.5 feet across. Coming out of the top of the stump were 2 trees, clearly much, much younger as they were maybe 6 inches in diametre. What a majestic sight!

i used to live in yosemite and would visit the grove. the foot paths that circle the trees do go over the roots. what roads are they talking about? what parking lots? what other amenities are they talking about being removed? everything that is located the way i remember it to be right now, is outside the grove. i need to see a map before i sign this and i would also like to know how they are going to relocate the amenities without doing more damage to the trees.

Experiencing the sequoias, is an experience I will never forget. The magnificence of these ancient tress is incomparable to anything I have ever seen.
