Eventually, we got to the park. We stopped in the store to decide where to go and decided to head to General Sherman....the most famous Sequoia. Little did we know, once you get to the park, you have about another hour to get to the Sequoias because of going up a mountain and the road winds around. Plus, we had to keep stopping to take pics of the view. :)
It was amazing how big those trees are. The pictures you see and anything you've seen about them on tv, just do not do the size justice. Karissa loved looking at the trees. There was a momma bear and two cubs at the start of the trail. Karissa loved watching them too and learned how to growl like a bear. She still loves bears and loves to growl even two months later.
On the way out of the park there was a deer right in the road. We also saw a mountain lion, but couldn't get a picture of it before it ran off. It was really cool!
It made for a long day, but we are so thankful that we decided to take that day trip!
