    As the sun rose, we hopped up and hit the road to Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks. Be sure to stock up PLEEENTLY of H2O to keep your cells dancing! We were awe-struck with the beauty and size of their towering trees. You can easily imagine yourself as small as a cute little furry chipmunk scurrying around a serene elephant. This is majestic place where wild animals roam free.

    We were elated that we had the opportunity to check out the Giant Forest Museum. The fountain of knowledge expanded as our eyes perceived about the life cycle and history of Earth's astounding trees.

    As we planned to explore the Tunnel Log but discovered that we had to book a Lodgepole Campground campsite, the only two remaining available sites. We had only an hour left before the ranger station closed for the night. We zipped to Analog and Tunnel Log.

    If you like to climb on a log, check out the Analog! This tree was fallen years ago and it gives us an opportunity to scramble around and on the log. We felt as if we were little insects or small mammal scurrying and moseying on the log! You can also observe how the roots are formed into bizarre directions. What a great break for snap shots!

    We zipped to the Tunnel Log, where we saw bears, a doe with her fawn. Have you ever heard of a Bear Patrol? Well, they have it at the Sequoia NP (National Park)! There, a tree fell over the road and it was cut into a tunnel. If you want to drive your vehicle through a log, take a shot here!
