My trip to see Sequoia was short but sweet. We stayed at Lodgepole Campground and were lucky to not have any bear invasions! The initial shock of seeing the sequoias left a lasting impression on me. I gasped! They really must be seen in person to grasp the massive size...so tall... so thick... like wise, patient giants.
There was fog for most of the stay but it felt like walking through an enchanted forest. It added a level of mystery to these already mysterious trees. All of the trees in the area are astoundingly tall, but the sequoias are like none other. Some of them have been around since the time of Christ. What a thought.
