When I was 10 years old, I won the quiz competition at my school, which was surprising to me and most of my teachers because I was considered deaf dumb and blind. What I remember the most about the competition was the final question that clinched my victory. The question was about the tallest trees in the world and I knew they were redwood trees. I felt so good knowing something so trivial. Over the years, I read everything about redwood trees and always wanted to see them.
Yosemite national park was the place I wanted to visit. It was snowing and tire chains were mandatory . I have never used tire chains and had no idea how to install them. I parked my car near the entrance and opened the tire chain box to read the instruction manual. Fortunately a trucker felt sorry for me and installed the tire chains for me.
I got to see both the giant sequoias and the coastal redwood trees.
Also the half dome rock formation..
