The Mountain View

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

I often see photos of mist and clouds over mountains but I never had the chance to experience the sight myself until recently. Nothing could be more peaceful than just sitting on top of  a mountain all by yourself and the people you surround yourself with. We were away from all the tourists (and their ugly giant family campers) and we had this surreal sight all to our itty-bitty little selves. This specific stop was in the mountains of the Sequoia National Forest heading towards the largest tree in the world, the General Sherman. As you will see throughout the photos of my different blog posts, at times the sun was shining and there wasn't any need for coats and hats while other times it was nearly impossible to stand without being completely covered in warm garments! 

The first two photos show the sun setting and our Sequoia adventure coming to an end. The next two photos show the amazing mountain top covered in snow and me enjoying the warmth of the sun.

Enjoying the fresh air in the mountains one last time before leaving!! We sat staring at this view for a good amount of time before someone else came and visited the area for a little while. They soon left and we were completely alone again. The sounds of birds that I had never heard before was in the air and the the smell of pine was extremely fragrant!

ATTENTION TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY PROPERLY PLAN AN ENGAGEMENT MOMENT: This spot could be the perfect place to ask your special someone to marry you. See? I just made it easy for you!
 Your welcome. :)

Unfortunately we had to leave this amazing place. I did buy a park entry pass for a year though... so don't you think I won't be back Sequoias! BUT... bye bye, for now, Mr. Sherman!! You will be greatly missed!

Be aware that some of the major attractions are closed during the winter times or any other time it snows heavily. Make sure to use a car with tire chains if snow is present, and most importantly be safe and follow the set speed limits. As a biologist and someone who loves wildlife I was saddened to see many people not respecting or following the rules of the park. For this reason I MUST say, please respect the wildlife and all the effort made by numerous ecological biologists and wildlife preservation specialists by staying on the designated trails and do not move items from within the forest in a joined effort to preserve all wildlife and the natural habitat. 

If you have any photos of your trip to the Sequoia National Forest, or any other adventure you may have had recently that you would like to share, I would love to see them, so please paste a link down below in the comment section!
