Yosemite National Park, California: Fallen Monarch
There sure are some big trees in California. Yosemite has some in Mariposa Grove, near the South Entrance.
This is a good way to demonstrate just how big these trees are. Fallen Monarch died and fell over a while ago. This way, you can see the size of the roots. Yes, those are people in the background. And note how far the tree goes back into the distance.
