Today we're hanging out in the Sierras ... a little hiking, a little bird watching, a little sketching. Perfection. Yesterday we picnicked near the Bull Buck Tree, a giant sequoia, in Nelder Grove. Our four-year-old screamed "that tree is ginormous" when he saw it. He's right: it is more than 250 feet tall and about 90 feet in girth at the ground! Click here for info about visiting the trail.
