Giant Sequoia’s in California

Making our way to Las Vegas for a family wedding, we stopped for a few days in Tulare County near Porterville at a Corp of Engineers campground at Lake Success. Our goal was to explore the southern unit of the Giant Sequoia National Monument. This area is home to some of the biggest and oldest giant sequoia specimens in the world. Many of them have been named. Hercules, Methuselah, Adam, Euclid and Great Bonsai to name a few. No drive-through tree here – that’s up in the northern unit.

Caching in the Redwoods

A week in redwoods of Northern California was quite refreshing, in more ways than one.

Other than my recent group outing to the Cathedral Hills of Grants Pass, OR, my geocaching numbers have been pretty pathetic so far this year. This redwood trip didn’t produce big caching numbers but I managed to get out find a few nearly every day. Refreshing.

Patricia’s photography goals here were for blooming rhododendrons, fog and tall redwood trees. Every morning we were seeking, and finding, those conditions. Refreshing

This was also a great way to gradually test our nomadic life skills in the motorhome before our final departure from Coos Bay July first! We are growing more comfortable with it each week! Can’t wait to get started!
