Sequoiadendron gianteum – Yosemite (January 2016, 24″ x 18″, linocut)
The famous Mariposa Grove is closed for rejuvenation, so I visited the lesser known, but equally inspiring, Tuolumne Grove in Yosemite for my next muse gathering outing. Giant Sequoias never fail to induce awe; I hope I’ve captured some of their majesty. Please go visit if you can! Sequoiadendron giganteum is the scientific name for this living fossil. I almost called this one the Youthful Ancient , as it’s only a a baby in terms of age – older than the discovery of the Americas!
