... were nice, but Dean and I really wanted to get a little more adventurous, so the next day during Iris' nap we went back up to the park. We heard that the Crystal Meadow trail was a good place to see wildlife, so we headed that way. Dean was really hoping to see a bear (who am I kidding, I was too), and as we pulled into the parking lot someone told us there was a bear right there! So before we even started hiking we saw a pretty big ...
... at this point. It's an hour of driving away and up in elevation. Currently, there are some trees but they are little and aren't close to the giant sequoias we've read about, not sure how bigger trees will grow at higher elevations, but we will continue on to seek them out. Both boys are sleeping so, the windy roads are easy travelling. It's becoming greener and looking more like the forest we were expecting. Suddenly there are redwood trees, and they ...

On the way back ...
... and their long vacations...
The next day I rode from the Horse Creek campground on Kaweah Lake to halfway up the steep climb up to Sequoia. The lake is at 1000 ft, but the park attractions are at 6000 ft. Most of the climb is up a steep, winding road. I guess I wasn't used to riding in 90 degree heat, because last several miles of the 42 mile ride were not so fun. I think I was nearing heat exhaustion at that point :)
Day three I drove ...
