This is one of the places I was really really looking forward too! The huge forest was calling my name. Turns out it wasn't as glamorous as I thought it would be... Still amazing though.
The drive into the park is also very beautiful. You can see so much lush green forest's on the mountains. The road was very winding and had some switchbacks but it was cool.
Moro Rock which we later climbed. We are now "frenemies' a love hate relationship.
I thought everything would be cool and shaded here. We are high up so it shouldn't be hot right?
Wrong, It was extremely hot. And being high up also means climbing something I should have realized. It also means less air and altitude sickness. Something else I should have thought of.
Starting the climb of Moro rock. Almost 400 step straight up to the top of a mountain.
Have I mentioned here before how much I don't like heights???? This is the winding road we came in on.
Taking a break cause I am light headed, can't breathe, and scared to death....
More heights.... I mean I know it looks pretty now, but standing there taking the shot I couldn't even think straight I was hanging on for dear life.
Finally at the top, and then I didn't even walk to the edge or the end of it cause I was just done. Completely done with the whole thing... Sad I know...
If you have never seen the sequoias, or the redwoods, then maybe you can't quite grasp how big these trees are, but they are enormous!
I did manage to get this full length shot of one of the sequoias! I was happy with this!
Me in front of Mr. General Sherman. The largest oldest living tree today in North America. He was far to big to get a full of shot of him.
So I did make through and I did enjoy the beauty but I also freaked out a bit that day! Over all its a memorable stop on our journey!
