We passed some fields of grapes:
|How's this for Patriotic!|
As we got closer to the Park it was very smokey - they were doing a controlled burn.
|Entrance to the park|
|Smokey haze - not good for photo's!|
We drove through the park at a nice leisurely pace, it was alot quieter than Yosemite.
Just as we got into the park there were some enormous Sequoia trees that have to be seen to be believed:
Then we walked up to the General Grant Tree,
which is the 3rd largest tree in the world!
|You can't actually get it all in 1 photo|
|Inside a fallen Sequoia Tree|
There were lots of windy roads:
Halfway into Sequoia National Park we seen this:
|A Deer on the side of the road|
|Didn't worry about us at all!|
Then we were extremely shocked to see this fellow:
|He walked out of the bush|
|crossed the road & turned|
|Back into the bush!|
Then we got closer to the controlled Burn:
But the smoke was going the other way so I was able to get some good photos:
|this is not snow it's a white rock!|
Then we run into some more roadworks:
|We were reduced to 1 lane|
|got held up for about 1/2 hour|
Then we came out the other side at Three Rivers where we stayed the night.
That"s it for now.
