Dodging Bears in the Sequoias

In September Kathy & I drove up to Sequoia National Park. I thought it would be fun but was not prepared for how spiritual an experience it was.  Looking forward to going back there some day.

My personal recommendations:

  • Book a lodge in the park if you can. They’re booked far in advance but it’s better than driving the windy roads every day from just outside of the park.
  • If you can, walk the Congress Trail; two miles of peaceful, awe-inspiring sights, sounds, smells and textures.
