Sequoia Reflections in Round Meadow
Big Trees Trail - Sequoia National Park
One of the highlights of my visit to Sequoia on this recent trip was the walk around the perimeter of Round Meadow on the Big Trees Trail. Viewing the trees from across the meadow gave a different perspective from what you typically see when walking through the forest. Here, you were able to "stand back", in a sense, and get a better feel for what a stand of trees looks like. Much different than standing at the base of one of these giants and craning your head WAY back to try and see the top. Thanks to all the recent melting snow and rainfall parts of the meadow were filled with standing water, making for some cool reflections of the trees.
