Finally took the time to visit Sequoia National Park and I am so glad we did. The drive to the park through rolling hills that gradually climbed to the park was beautiful. Don't hurry on these winding roads, enjoy the variety of scenery until the road grows more winding and darkens from the shade and you smell the aroma of the giant redwoods. Take the time to explore the turnouts and trails. A short walk will take you from most of the crowd into the cool, quiet shade of these giant trees which have provoked wondrous response for hundred of years. We went on a week day in the fall and the crowds had thinned but consessions were also closed or had more limited hours. Don't miss this place - it touched me in ways I did not expect.
