    The Drive to Sequoia

    The hubby and I left Garden Grove about 6:30am, and got to Sequoia's southern entrance about 11am. Shortly after, we unfortunately got stuck in a 50-minute wait for a construction zone escort:



    After that mess, we began our trek through the gorgeous scenery:





    And, we even saw some of the local residents:



    Here's a close-up of the cuteness:

        Crystal Cave

        Saturday morning, we explored the wonders of Crystal Cave:






















        Even our tallest camper braved the small passages:



        The strenuous return hike offered some breathtaking scenery:





        Blue buckets were provided at the cave entrance for volunteers to hike back with a load of rubble from an old structural demolition that had been polluting the cave. Here are a few of our bold men who carried that weight:

            Nice pics. I remember going there back in 1989. That windy road made my mom & I soooo car sick! We were so mad at my dad for dragging us there. We even got a pic of me sitting on this big rock and I looked majorly pissed off (because I still felt icky and wanted to go back to the hotel and lie down).

                Kings Canyon - Muir's Pulpit

                After the meadow trek, we basked in the splendor of Muir's Pulpit:











                Overall, it was an awesome trip. I think all of us can't wait to go back. :clap:

                          Gorgeous area! I've not been there before, so, I really enjoyed your photos. That cave looked amazing.....I'd NEVER go in a cave with my fibromyalgia, but, it was neat to look at the shots you took.
