Well – I was supposed to be hiking with Brodie….. in the Yosemite high country – starting in Lyell canyon. Alas, it was not to be, as Brodie hurt his back and was unable to go (damn). With no back-county hike possible, I quickly recast this into a visit to Sequoia NP and Kings Canyon NP. I somehow was able to talk Amy into driving up from LA, and was able to hike with her on Saturday.
First though, I had to get thru Thursday and Friday.. For Thursday, I drove to Sequoia, after flying over Mono lake , and then driving from Berkeley. When I got there, I quickly enjoyed the General Grant tree grove…. And then a nice hike called Big Baldy, in which I shared the summit with 2 guys from Chicago (who helped me film my DYB of course).
A nice start to the week for sure.
