The Tennessee Tree shows resilience to fire damage, continuing to thrive in spite of deep fire scars. The living tissue or cambium layer of a sequoia lies just under its bark. As long as some of this thin, living tissue connects the leaves above with the roots below, the tree will continue to live. If undisturbed by people, or more fire, this living layer will eventually heal the fire scars seen on this tree.

photo point for General Grant tree
The General Grant Sequoia tree is the second-tallest living thing on earth, standing over 267 feet tall with a 40 diameter and 107 circumference at its base. It is estimated to be between 1500 and 2000 years old. The General Grant Sequoia is both the Nations Christmas tree (as proclaimed by President Coolidge in 1926) and the only living National Shrine memorializing veterans who served in the US armed forces.

Grizzly Falls and Lee Duquette
The water seen below tumbling over Grizzly Falls started at Grizzly Lakes in the heart of Monarch Wilderness. Snow melts off wilderness peaks like Mt. Harrington which is over 11,000 feet tall, and makes its way to the Kings River here and eventually to the San Joaquin Valley.
