I hope you outdoors enthusiasts enjoy this one.
Today the Wife and I drove up into the Sierra Nevada mountains to Sequoia, this spectacular area is just an hour and some change from my house. I am glad I made it up here, it really renewed my enthusiasm for the outdoors. I got here and all I saw was cattle lots with muddy cows and the stench of rotting cow manure in the air, Seeing this so close was refreshing.

|Nothing but hairpin turns and glorious views up here|
|Too bad the smog cuts down visibility.|
|Little brooks pop up everywhere|
|The picture does not do the tree's size justice|
|This tree has grown into the boulder next to it|
|My Weimaraner Roxy, ain't she pretty?|
|Diesel, my wife's Gobirian|
|High altitude tree tops|
|Took a while to get them to sit still long enough for a picture.|
|This area is all solid rock shaped by vegetation and glaciers|
|There is the brightest green moss I have ever seen growing on these redwoods|
|See the light|
|A sunset to end it on|
I forgot my GPS and we were lost on the trails for a short time. A short time is a long time to get disoriented, luckily we found our way back with 30 minutes of sunlight left. Next time I know what i am getting into.
