Trail to Muir Grove, Sequoia National Park, California USA
California
The forest in Sequoia National Park looks similar to other forests of the world, until you get the perspective on the size of the trees. Even the trees that are not Sequoias are larger than normal. The giant Sequoias are the worlds largest trees by volume of wood. Almost the equal of the giant Sequoias is the Sugar Pine. The Sequoia has small round shaped cones, but the Sugar Pine cones are huge and can weigh up to 4 pounds. Once you leave the crowds around the most popular sites in the National Park, hiking through the forest is an adventure in solitude. The trees dampen any sounds and the extreme height of the trees makes for a dark shade at the forest floor. The variety of plant life is stunning, with flowers and a variety of vines and smaller trees. Other tree species include Douglas fir, Incense Cedar, Jeffrey Pine and Lodgepole pine.

More About 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.
