We spent more time in Sequoia NP than in Yosemite in last month's trip. My son was seduced by the big old trees. This was my favorite meadow, a little off the beaten path with no marked trails. My grandson loved the trees too - he has always been a tree climber, and he had never had such amazing trees to tackle before, and so many ways to explore them.

It's a very short photo story, I guess.

The meadow as we stumbled upon it, late afternoon.

You'll have to look closely to find the little boy hidden in this upturned giant.

Son and grandson doing their log walking routine.

A paradise of lush, sun-caressed greenery wrapped around old giants like a comfy blanket.

It's like a story of growth, majestic decay and fresh renewal. The cycle of life.

So it is fitting that you populate that scene also with your offspring (and his own).

On a more mundane level, they provide scale.

Just as Roel says.

Enjoying and preserving places like this has to be part of the landscape photographer's motivation. They speak of life in all its diversity.

A family photo that is so much more than a snapshot memory.
