Wanderlust Wednesday : Sequoias

First, a bit of trivia. The word "sequoia" is one of very few English words to have all five vowels. The shortest English word with all five vowels is "eunoia" which means "beautiful thinking".

Okay. Wanderlusting! I think the place that has captured my imagination most in the United States is the redwood forest. Giant sequoias. I read once in National Geographic that no camera can actually capture the vastness of these trees in a printed or filmed image.

So basically, there's no way to really experience them but to see them and touch them. How mysterious! Some day trees, some day...
