While some travel sights in the world evoke emotion, others truly inspire awe. These are the grandest places on the planet and often leave visitors speechless. They are difficult to describe because words seem inadequate. In this series, I will explore those sights that I have found to be the most awe-inspiring. I’m sure everyone has their own personal list of these sights, but these are “my very best.”
Imagine a tree which stood when Christ walked the streets of Nazareth, a tree whose trunk dwarfs people standing next to it, a tree which has survived earthquakes, fires, and gigantic storms. The General Sherman tree, located within Sequoia National Park in California, is such a specimen. It is known as the largest living thing ever to have existed.
