I would rather not to drive up the steep and winding road myself to get to the giant trees. Mere mentioned in GtownMed's posting that you can join a tour. could you tell me more about it? How can I book the tour? I'll drive from San Diego to Sequoia on 8/10 with my teenage daugther and planning to stay there for 3 nights. I would rather not to stay in the park due to the cost. However, I might have to. If I do stay in the park, can I find something to do after midday when arrive there on 8/10? Thanks a million.
