And what a forest that is. Sequoia NP in California. It’s our fifth time in the West of the USA but the first time we managed to visit the place.

And the reason is simple: If we start from San Francisco our route usually cross the Tioga pass in the Yosemite NP to get over the mountains of the Sierra Nevada. But not this time. This time we chose to get down on the coast and visit Sequoia before we continue to Long Pine.

We stayed in Visalia for two nights so that we could enter the park early plus to have a place to rest after the visit. I was not sure if it is worth to spent two days of our precious vacation but this was our fifth three week vacation in the South West so we have seen most of the attractions already. Almost all of them during our first vacation when we rushed through the country like a South Indian Curry through the body of a tourist.

Not a nice picture but you got the point. It’s also not nice to haste through this beautiful country but when you come here the first time you have no choice. Same thing with the Curry.

But from the very first picture (the one above) I knew that it was a good decision to finally visit the place.
