Leaving work (in Sequoia Hall) about 2:30 on Friday, I grabbed my Sequoia bike (and other things) and we headed north to Sequoia National Park to be sequestered amongst the giant sequoia trees.

Thanks to the National Park Service and their comment-taking reservation request system, we found our camping site on the far edge of the campground, away from everybody -- just how we like it.

We spent Saturday hiking at Wolverton, on a path to Heather Lake. I believe the total distance turned out to be some eight miles, with elevation change of a couple thousand feet. A good strenuous time. Numerous wildflowers to see, and idyllic fern-filled bright green meadows amongst the pine forests and fallen tree trunks, and critters too, and sweeping vistas of stone and sky.

Here are some photos of the wonderful flowers we happened upon. In some places beds of flowers covered the forest floor in large bright carpets. In other places, single blossoms posed in singular splendour for parade review.

Such a relaxing time, so good to get away and be outdoors for a while.

In the next journal entry, you get to meet some of the critters we encountered.
