Grant Grove is by far the most popular group of giant sequoia is at Grant Grove. A self-guiding, 1/3 mile paved loop path winds through the nearby grove, past two dozen or so particularly large sequoia, many named after US states. Perhaps the most famous is 1,700 year old, 266 foot high General Grant, the third largest sequoia in the world and also both the Nation's Christmas Tree and a National Shrine. Another notable sequoia is the Fallen Monarch, the 124 foot long trunk of a tree that toppled many centuries ago and is now hollow owing to a combination of fire damage and natural decay; a path runs through the whole length of the trunk.

This is an overview of USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
