Kiama's Charm - no.6

The second day in Yosemite we visited the Mariposa Grove. An area with about 500 giant sequoia trees, some more then 3000 years old. They feel like Timeless Giant Living Beings, bearing witness of small, limited, over complicated and semi-conscious life.

They are pretty awesome. The wood from the giant sequoia is highly resistant to decay, so any fallen tree will lay there for hundreds of years. They need wild fires for the seeds to open and clear the ground of competing growths.

We had a hike of a couple hours through the grove and I decided to leave a charm on one of the bushes near some crossing paths.

Kiama's spirit will live on amongst these giant age old trees.
