There are so many fallen trunks that have been there for at least a century--the compound in sequoias that gives the red coloring to their bark also makes them impenetrable to rot. Seeing them laid out on the ground like this really helps you to see just how great their girth is, which to me was the most impressive thing about them. And the trunks seemed to go on and on across the forest floor for a mile.

That about sums up our trip. London did much better on the way home--she only barfed four times instead of ten! Thanks to everyone for your comments, messages, e-mails, and likes on facebook. I had so much fun sharing this and reading all the responses! Before I wrap up all the Yosemite fun, I wanted to share these photos Dan's great-uncle Fred e-mailed us after reading about Half-Dome. These photos are scans from slides he had from their trip to Yosemite in 1955!
Aren't those the coolest?! I've been gushing over them to Dan since Uncle Fred sent them to us, and I'm so glad he said I could share them on the blog. Thanks for reading, everyone!!
