We all know that there is so much to see in Northern Calfiornia. The Redwoods. The Elephant Seals in Ano Nuevo. The whales off the coast of Point Reyes. Yosemite Naitonal Park. There's also Sequoia National Park.

For those who love Sequoias, but don't want to drive all the way to the Sequoia National Park, there's the Calaveras Big Trees State Park. This park is about a 3 hour drive from Silicon Valley and it is truly amazing. The trees at this park are the largest living things on planet Earth. The Blue Whale is the greatest creature on our planet -- and one of the Giant Sequoias in this park are as big as 16 Blue Whales stacked in a line like a series of railroad cars. Yes, it's hard to believe they are that big and that close to Silicon Valley.
