Pic of the day!

Over at Mysterious Universe, Micah Hanks related a story regarding a conversation he had with
one of my all-time favorite people, Brad Steiger. The topic: Giants. Anyone who's visited my blog at least once
before knows about my fascination with Giants...

The picture above is of a Mother and Child found in the Yosemite Valley in the 1800's. The woman was about
seven feet tall, and holding an infant in her arms. The way in which they were buried shows that someone took
the time and the care to make sure the dead were respected. This was surely a tribe of intelligent and incredibly
tall people. What happened to them, only time and really careful research will tell, for as Steiger relayed to
hanks, when you delve into this kind of mystery, it only leads to trouble.

Yeah, there could have been a race or races of "giants," and what we currently know about human evolution (or possibly incuding even human biology) seems not to be able to fit them in.

Who knows, if they did exist, they may still exist in some capacity today. In any case, I'm not so knowledgable about this particular area.

Wonder what the scientists (archaelogists, etc) say about this stuff? What is their explanation(s)?
