USA, California, Yosemite Park, Sept. 2008

Fallen sequoia tree in Mariposa Grove.
This is not a good picture because it was taken against the light, but it serves to illustrate my entry for Proverb Monday:
"Wanneer een boom ter aarde zijgt, maakt ieder dat hij takken krijgt" ~ "When a tree falls down, everybody tries to get its branches" meaning that people are very greedy to get the possessions of the deceased.
Apparently this was the case in the past when this proverb came into use!

I look at the map, but Yosmite is so big.:-(

That is true Bea, but if you want to see the Sequoia's, then you should go to Mariposa Grove which in the south part of Yosimete Park.
