The General Grant Grove is located near the border of Kings Canyon National Park and Sequoia National Park. The Grove contains the General Grant Tree, one of the largest in the Park. The North Grove Loop Trail winds through a beautiful rocky setting for some grand sequoias. The rounded granite boulders are a contrast to the huge trunks of the giant trees. At the time of this panorama, the forest was exceptionally dry but even though there had been little rain, the small streams were still running from springs in the area. The panorama shows the variety of trees that grow, all of which are overshadowed by the giant sequoias. This is truly one of nature’s most spectacular areas and certainly worth the visit. The big trees grow only in certain areas and are separated by large stretches of heavy forest. The scarcity of the trees is not all natural since in the early years of California history, they were heavily logged.

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.
