Yes people do really stupid things even today while they must know better.
Yes, people and nature, a difficult combination.......
Unbelievable John.. and we are supposed to be the most intelligent of the species, this sort of thing makes me seriously doubt this theory !
This won't be the last stupid idea we see in our lifetime, John.
We were able to see this one in person.
I once saw a picture of a "house" carved out of a log that was about as big as a shipping container.
we humans are a selfish bunch.
and i'm sure there are still some stupid humans writing and carving all over it. They truly are magnificent trees.
My wife and I visited the beautiful Sequoias just last June for the first time. Photos just can't do them justice . . . even mine ;-) Thanks for the memories and reminders.
If only we go back and undo past mistakes.
on our list of what to see for sure. i want to see those mighty Sequoias. so gorgeous! ( :
Hopefully time has made us more aware of nature and how to protect it... not too sure though John?
Interesting insight on history of our attitudes, and such a shame. Hopefully our ideas of nature have evolved a little!
I was there when I was a kid. Nice shots.
I agree. How stupid of that tree to grow exactly where the road was going to go. And they say that age brings wisdom!
It's been many years since I went there. I love the majesty of the trees and wish that they hadn't been cut and "maimed".
