Sequoia National Park - April 28, 2009
- largest trees in the world

Sequoia National Park has the largest trees in the world. Mt. Whitney on the eastern border of Sequoia is the highest peak in the continental United States. Sequoia is our second oldest National Park. It was created by the Congress on September 25, 1890 because residents of the San Joaquin Valley and conservationists feared that loggers would destroy the rare giant trees.

The park encompasses so much more than the Sequiadendron giganteum, the scientific name for Sequoias. The park ranges in elevation from 1,500 feet at the entrance to 14,494 on the top of Mount Whitney, the highest peak in the contiguous United States.
