... Overlook trail. The trees were amazing. The sad thing in the forest is the stump of the biggest sequoia tree that was cut down for fun by 5 men in 1852. It took them 22 days to cut down the tree that was 1244 years old. It was 280ft tall and 25ft in diameter. This greatly angered John Muir who started a preservation campaign of woods and natural beauty areas. We braved eating our picnic in the woods and happily did not see ...

... the Louvre to keep it in the area and now has it on display in a vault on the property. We bought a couple bottles and retuned home to make dinner in our apartment and sip wine on the side porch. Tomorrow, Aili has a conference call so we'll be laying low for the day, resting and catching up on e-mail, then heading north on Tuesday - destination still TBD (ah, the freedom of unscheduled travel!). Until next ...
