Grove of Sequoias

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 28 January 2013 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A grove of sequoias spotted in Muir Woods in California. Below this grove of sequoias was a bronze plaque which read:

Here in this grove of enduring redwoods,
preserved for posterity, members of the United Nations
Conference on International Organization met on May 19, 1945
to honor the memory of Franklin Delano Roosevelt,
thirty-first President of the United States,
chief architect of the United Nations
and apostle of lasting peace for all mankind.
