the trip home from Yosemite--Part VII: Sequoia National Park

(Sequoia National Park, July 2006)

After spending several days in Yosemite we headed south to Sequoia National Park. Sequoia is less crowded than Yosemite and the giant trees are stunning. The branch (above) we're sitting on fell from the General Sherman tree, the largest tree in the world in terms of mass.

After Sequoia we traveled further south to the Kern River and did some river-rafting. I didn't know what to expect but shooting the whitewater wasn't as scary as I'd thought.

We ended up making a giant loop from Orange County in Southern California up Highway 395 then west to Yosemite and down Highway 5 home. An amazing vacation. The scenery was a feast for the eyes!
