Whispering Giant: Sequoyah of North Carolina

Whispering Giant: Sequoyah of North Carolina

This Whispering Giant: Sequoyah sculpture calls Cherokee, North Carolina home.

Back in 2015, I participated in the Whispering Giants Grand Tour. It proved to be an excellent inspiration to get out for a ride. Each excursion was exciting. Seeing these fantastic carved Giants and how each one has so much character was a great experience.

Though the grand tour has long since passed, I still stop to see the giants when one is close by.
