Last weekend traveled over to King’s Canyon to finally see the Boole tree. I had been wanting to do this for awhile, especially after seeing jerry uelsmann’s photography relating to this sequoia- considered to be the largest in volume. At least I think I remember him using this tree and discussing it but cannot find this information online currently.

The trail is well-maintained traveling upward for awhile…we went to the left so encountered the panoramic views early on. Then the Boole tree emerges like an unexpected mythic giant.
