Fallen Giant MG 3

Another Angle of the "Fallen Giant", a Giant Sequoia Sequoiadendron giganteum that fell some 300 years ago (according to the National Park Service) in the Mariposa Grove of Yosemite National Park. Taken by a Nikon D40x with a Nikon 18-55mm VR kit lens (at 22)

 

There is a famous shot of a whole troop of buffalo soldiers posed by this tree with one whole platoon (horses and all!) atop the tree. See here:

To give you an idea of how large this log is, those two folks on the left are at least 150 feet away, and are only halfway to the other end of the log...
