I found this treasure driving from #kernville
on a windy mountainous road. I pulled over as it’s shadow circled by car. It took me a while to find it.
Some more Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park photos. They are beautiful parks. Too bad the air there is so polluted from nearby Visalia / Hanford / Bakersfield, which are in the top 3 of most polluted areas of the US. You should be able to see far into the Central Valley from a peak in Sequoia, but you can't.

Half way through the week! I can't help but day dream about my next adventure. Backpacking trip this weekend?? 😏
Cloudy skies and nasty weather were abundant last week in the eastern Siearra. On my last night the skies cleared and I was able to photograph the rising milky way.
Sunset view from my campground in King’s Canyon National Park. It’s called “Sunset Campground” for good reason—the sunset was stunning! Funny story about this campground—shortly after the sunset ended and I settled into my tent for a restful night of sleep, I heard a noise that almost seemed like a bear or mountain lion growling as it prowled around my tent. I have to admit that I was a little bit terrified and turned on my lantern inside my tent for a few minutes, hoping the light would scare it away. But the growling continued. I soon noticed that it followed a pattern, every 15 seconds or so...and suddenly realized that it was the man in the campsite next to me SNORING!! He was the loudest snorer I’d ever heard. Seriously kept me up half the night. But at least it wasn’t a mountain lion!! #kingscanyonnationalpark #kingscanyon #california #sunsetcampground #sunset
One of my favorite days was getting back on the JMT after picking up our last resupply in Independence, because we saw bears! 🐻 I loved all of the the wildlife we encountered, and Sam was very tolerant of me stopping ten times a day to take pictures of cute animals. 🐿 Marmots were all over the trail, and I never got sick of seeing them!🍃We did get to see some big horn sheep, but the pictures didn’t turn out very well 🐐#johnmuirtrail #yosemite #sequoianationalpark #kingscanyon #bear #kearsargepass
We may be coast lovers but these central Australia waterholes are really starting to get us. The last of the KINGS CANYON travel spam
