There's no better way to strain your neck than looking up at massive trees. Mariposa Grove is a great spot for that! The sign before the entrance to the grove says "No motorhomes over 23 feet from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. No trailers of any kind. No busses over 40 feet." During peak season, the parking lot is full most times before 10:00 and it is recommended you take the free shuttle from the South Entrance or the Wawona Store.
The drive to the grove whets your appetite for more of these giant specimens.
Sequoias spread out at the base as they age. This one looked like huge talons gripping the earth to keep its balance.
Are you old enough to remember the old style clothespins? That's what the Clothespin Tree is named for.
These trees are named "The Bachelor and the Three Graces"
Grizzley Giant - the largest tree in the park. There are arguments among experts as to its age, estimated between 1,800 to 2,700 years old, but unquestionably he is an ancient being. One of his upper branches is larger than any other non-sequoia tree trunk in the park.

For those unable to make the walk through the grove (most of it is uphill), there is the Big Trees Tram Tour that will take you around so you can get to the major attractions and have the chance for taking pictures. Reservations are recommended during peak season.
