... cub raced up two different trees and waited until the male bear stalked away. Bear drama!
The kids thoroughly enjoyed learning about the trees. I sometimes wonder if they "get it", but this time they did.

After a little navigational mishap on the way back, we returned to the campsite with tired feet but so happy that we walked it instead of driving. Our ...

Because as we learned, sequoia trees need a very moist environment to grow so everything is very green. Walking among the towering trees on the mountainside today while the clouds literally rolled by was amazing. The kids enjoyed hiking among the ...
