“Sequoia National Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We were a little sceptical about visiting this National Park as some reviews were a little on the negative side. We absolutely loved it here, it is well organised as will most national parks in the USA and we saw more bears and other wildlife here than we did in Canada. We went for 3 nights and stayed in Three Rivers just outside the park.

The only downside was the road works on the mountain pass where we could sometimes be waiting up to 30 mins to get through the lights, if you timed it right though it wasnt an issue. Hopefully that should all be fixed and massive credit to the guys working on the project to make this place accessible for all.

Definately would recommend a visit here.

We sat in wonderment as our 3 year old granddaughter took in the beauty. A must for everyone to see, it is nature at its grandest.

“Let it Snow!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

March is the perfect time to go. It's the off season and there are a lot less tourist & cars. We are always able to walk through the trails that are open and enjoy the beautiful snow!! I've taken some amazing pictures here. My pup loved the snow as well. It's an amazing place to visit. If you want to get away to a place to relax you must visit the Giant Forest.

“Magic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Fairies, pixies and wood sprites abound and the Green Man dances a jig in this magical place. Nuff said..... Go, go now and sit quietly and marvel at these ancient living beings.
