The Sights: Sequoia National Park

October 5th, 2010 · No Comments · travel

Driving through the towering Sequioa trees as a light drizzle fell from a hazy sky and the way the light filtered through the trees felt a bit magical as if we could have been transported to another world if we took a wrong turn.

With a flashlight in hand for a guided one-hour tour of Crystal Cave, we followed a creek deep into the cave and came across someĀ  unbelievable marble rock formations. At one point we turned off our flashlights to experience complete darkness in one of the rooms.

We took our time hiking back to the parking lot and were clicking away with our digital cameras. There was so much to see. We found everything about the forest so fascinating!


Our last stop on the trip was General Sherman’s Tree, the largest tree in volume on record. It had a colossal trunk!

On our way home we stopped to eat at the Riverview Restaurant. Nothing fancy, but after a day of hiking and eating granola bars this place was just what we needed. Added bonus: the view!
