A Few More Trees


If you haven’t seen enough giant sequoia trees in my last few posts, I will share a few more photos I took in the Sequoia National Park’s Giant Forest.


These trees are called the Three Graces. They stand across and just down the way from the Giant Forest Museum.


This tree grows near the path to the General Sherman tree. The large black area on the tree is a fire scar. The fire that left the scar may have happened hundreds or more than a thousand years ago.



This is a fallen giant sequoia tree through which a passage has been cut away. I walked through without having to stoop.


I like the bumpy texture of this tree’s bark.

About Blaize Sun

I live in my van, which makes me a rubber tramp. I like to see places I've never seen before, and I like to visit the places I love again and again. I like to play with color. I make collages and hemp jewelry and cheerful winter hats. I take photographs and (sometimes, not in a long time) write poetry. All of those things make me an artist. Although I like to spread joy and to make people laugh, my wit can be sharp. I try to stay positives in all situations, to find the goodness in all people. But I often feel compelled to point out bullshit when I smell it. I like to have fun, to dance, to eat yummy food, to sit by a fire and share stories. I want to know what people hold dear and important, not just make surface small talk. This blog is a way for me to share stories. This blog is made up of my stories, rants, and observations, as well as my photographs.

I'd love to know what you think. Please leave a reply
