General Sherman and General Grant Are Also Names of Large Trees

To wit:

 General Sherman Monarch Sequoia at Sequoia National Park

General Sherman, the “largest living thing on earth”. There are people at the foot of the tree, for comparison, some of whom were relatively large — I assumed they were from the midwest.

 General Grant Sequoia at Kings Canyon National Park

As clearly demonstrated above, General Grant is barely three inches wide.

Beyond just the generals, a lot of snow, a lot of trees, a lot of snow with trees. As evidenced by:

 Grant Grove at Kings Canyon National Park

Snow on trees.

Snow falling through fallen sequoia in Grant Grove

Snow in tree.

All in all, though, the trees were noteworthy and there was snow.
