Sequoia National Park

Venturing into Sequioa National Park is venturing into a land of ancient giants.  As we drove up Generals Highway from the south, we encountered many a giant around every corner, some as part of a family of giants, others as lone giants.  We couldn't wait to park and start our hike once we reached the Giant Forest Museum. Luckily, there were many trails for us to stand in awe of these trees as old as 3200 years old.  Of course, despite its name, Sequioa National Park is not just about giant sequoias.  We managed a trail or two into different environments as well, walking through snow to reach a mirroring subalpine lake, and walking through dry foothills to a cascading waterfalls over marble rock.
