Whilst driving around the Sequoia National Park, California, as one does, I discovered the most charming Bed and Breakfast just north of the town of Three Rivers. I received a warm welcome, as the British always get when visiting the United States. I was given a choice of rooms and I chose the ground floor. The room was comfortable, nicely furnished and very clean. Out back was a well planned garden with cooking facilities for a bar-b-que. It was the kind of place where one could rest and reflect on the tree hugging experience in the National Park earlier.
