Amazingly Beautiful Sequoia National Park

 As we were making our way to Sequoia National Park we began to see sights like this.

We began to climb.  Then the sights became like this.

We drove the winding road up and around, up and around, up and around. Then we began to see the beautiful Sequoias.  Once we started to see them, I decided to get a few pictures (of course).  So I rolled the window down.  Two things happened immediately.  First a blast of very cool air breezed into the vehicle.  Which was surprising as at the bottom of the winding road it was pretty warm.  And then the second most amazing thing happened.  With the sweep of cool air came the unmistakable fragrance of the Sequoias.  I had no idea that I would experience that.  I will never forget it.  As soon as I took it in, my eyes got HUGE and I looked over at Todd and almost yelled, "DO YOU SMELL THAT?!"  It was so cool.  I absolutely loved the smell of that forrest.

We continued up and as we did the trees got larger and larger.  As a matter of fact you cannot imagine how big they were.  (See that tiny person?)

 And these were not even the biggest.

 We just couldnt get over it.  And once again we just couldnt quit looking.

 It was just beautiful up there.

This is our rent car with Todd inside.

We really enjoyed Gods beauty here.  We enjoyed the sounds which were so peaceful.  We enjoyed the smells. We enjoyed each other together out in what I called "Gods country".
In this last picture Todd was looking for bears.  We had seen a sign indicating that there may be some present and we really wanted to see one.  ----Little did we know...
