Weekend Musings, Giant Sequoia’s and Author Jon Mooallem’s Perspective

In my weekend musings about cultural and natural history in general, Author, Jon Mooallem, gets some human perspective from giant sequoias on a wintry visit to California’s Sequoia National Park in a New York Times article,  In the Land of the Giants. Mooallem provides history on the park’s establishment which includes back story on the Kaweah Colony, a collective of fifty three individuals who, in 1885, filed, according to Mooallem, for “8,000 adjoining acres centered in the Giant Forest.”  Great article for historic facts and Mooallem’s perspectives on these giants’ timelines, the public’s reaction to them and his own visit to the park.
