|Back in the summer, Andrea & I took a vacation & drove out to the CA coast by LA, then north to San Francisco, back inland to meet some of her family, then headed back, through Yosemite and the Sequoia national parks.
Wow If you EVER get a chance to see those two parks, you really need to do it. It's just awesome. Driving up the Pacific coast highway was really cool, and San Fran was great, but the two national parks were the icing on the cake.
I've posted a couple of pictures. The first is at Yosemite; Andrea is at the overlook. In the second, I'm standing by a medium-sized giant sequoia - it's about 15-17 feet in diameter. (It's maybe a thousand years old!) When they're fully grown, they'll be 30 feet in diameter! (looking at that picture, it's hard to believe that I'm 6'-2", ...)
I'll post more photos as time permits.
