Since we couldn’t enter Yosemite from it’s north-eastern side and had to go all the way back south, we decided spontaneously to stop for a day at Sequoia National Park. It’s best known for the Giant Forest, where you can wander around the impressive, grand Sequoia trees. Among them “General Sherman”, the biggest tree on earth.
In Giant Forest we hiked around the big trees, that were perfect for treehugging. We had two seasons, summer and winter, in one day. We didn’t encounter any bears, but some beautiful birds, and a relative of the Lumiukkos. He didn’t look very good, must have been the high temperatures:
