Visiting Sequoia National Park

Last weekend Robby and I decided to head up to Three Rivers and then Sequoia National Park for the day. It has been quite some time since I've been up to the giant trees. I'm sure it goes without saying that they were awesome! I forget how insanely humongous they are.

The weather was a bit all over the place, which we were not expecting. Luckily Robby had thrown in a couple of light sweatshirts as we headed out, and I'm so glad! Some people were there in their full on winter gear. I did good to have changed out of sandals for tennis shoes. The sun was in and out, but that made for some really awesome sights along the way.

Part of why we went last weekend was because the dogwoods are in bloom in the month of May. We saw blooming dogwoods last year in Yosemite, and last week when we were in Ohio (another post sometime), they were all abloom there! I love them so much. Totally worth a drive up to the park just to see their butterfly-like flowers everywhere.

The whole day was wonderful, and we hope this will be first of many trips this year!

    1. I know, Adrienne! Everyone we saw/met up there was from out of state or out of the country...and here we live just a couple of hours away and don't go! We want to change that :)

    1. What!? Okay. Next deGrassie trip is to come up and see, first of all, the Feely's, and second of all, one of the great wonders of the earth.

  4. Wow how fun. We just went up last weekend and the dogwoods reminded me of you. :) Did you see the General Sherman Tree? Also, the annual pass is only $10 more than a one day pass. So worth it! Our next trip will be to see the Crystal Caves. :)
