Dead Giant

Kings Canyon National Park, California

 

From a weekend ago, I did a 7 mile hike in Kings Canyon, where I had the trail on myself. I saw this dead sequoia on the trail, which a sign said in the early 20th century was stripped by loggers. Removing the outer layer kills a sequoia, though the dead tree has remained standing since.
