Above you see the largest tree in the North Grove. It's called the Empire State Tree.
When Augustus Dowd first discovered these trees around 1850, there were even larger trees like the one shown above. Unfortunately, this one was cut down and for several years used as a dance floor, bowling alley, and meeting place. And back in the 1970's I attended a wedding there. Ah... the 70's.
Some trees that have fallen down are hollow and you can walk inside them. In the Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park there is a fallen tree that was used as a home in the early days. These are some big trees, aren't they?
