Sequoia and Kings Canyon road trip
May 29, 2009
Charlotte, Monica, and I are on the road to Sequoia & Kings Canyon for some hiking in the Sierra. We couldn't talk Gabe and Nick into it, so it's kind of a girl's weekend with me along as the third wheel. It's going to be awesome!
A freakin big tree welcomes us to the park after not too long a drive from Santa Cruz.
It's very cool to walk in a redwood forest filled with Sequoia's instead of the usual coastal redwoods.
A few poses around one of the felled monsters.
I've got this thing for bark, what can I say. Hi Monica!
We're staying at the Montecito Sequoia Lodge right between the two parks thanks to Charlotte's investigative work. It's a great place, and clearly the marmots and chipmunks think so too.
Monica enjoys the great outdoors with her new friends.
