A Visit with Ancient Beings in your Los Angeles RV Rentals
Posted on Mar 18, 2016
The chaos and angst of this current presidential election year in conjunction with the encroaching road trip season creates the perfect excuse to take a deep breath, reserve a Los Angeles class A motorhome, and escape into beautiful California. Expedition Motorhomes is your Los Angeles motor homes rental headquarters and is here to provide you with everything you need to forget about life for awhile. Being an election year, it is always important to learn from history and honor the past. As such, why not visit some of the world’s oldest organisms on your upcoming Los Angeles class A motorhome road trip?
Check out these three ancient California residents as you explore the beauty of The Golden State!
Point Your Los Angeles RV Rentals North to Sequoia National Park Just four and a half hours north of where you will pick up your Los Angeles motor homes rental is Sequoia National Park. This park was set aside to preserve some of the planet’s largest, oldest, and most magnificent trees – the giant sequoias. The oldest known living sequoia, and one of the Earth’s oldest trees resides in the Giant Forest region of this park.
The President Tree is approximately 3,200 years old and is surrounded by countless other living giants. Just a short drive from both Kings Canyon and Yosemite National Parks, visiting The President Tree is a great way to spend some quality time outdoors on your Los Angeles class A motorhome road trip.
A Must-Visit Tree on your Southbound Los Angeles Motor Homes Rental Road Trip
If you plan on taking your Expedition Motorhomes RV south, consider stopping by Temecula, CA – home to the country’s largest indigenous coast live oak. The Great Oak is estimated to be nearly 2,000 years old and has served as an important gathering place and cultural icon for generations. Located about 1.5 hours south of Los Angeles, and the perfect halfway point between here and San Diego, the Great Oak provides the perfect rest stop for all southbound travelers!
Join the Quest to Find the Oldest Tree in the World
This final ancient being is for those who enjoy a bit of mystery. Nestled in the White Mountains/Inyo National Forest, just east of the Sierra Nevada and a bit south of Yosemite National Park, lives the oldest tree in the world. Methuselah is a Great Basin bristlecone pine tree that has been on this planet for nearly 5,000 years. The precise location of this organism is kept quiet by the US Forest Service for its protection, though you can visit the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest and be certain that somewhere around you Methuselah is watching.
