Sequoia National Park, California: The Sentinel

The Giant Forest Museum has a rather large "welcome mat" in front of it -- this tree called the Sentinel. It checks in at about 270 feet.

The fun part, though, comes on the pavement in front of the museum. There are markings to indicate just how long 270 feet is. It's almost a football field. It's a good way of showing just how big these trees really are. There are other sequoias in the grove by the museum, so it's an easy hike to see them.
