Ace and I visited Sequoia National Park. We stayed in the foothills in Three Rivers. It was HOT HOT in the foothills between 100-104 every day, but it was nice once we climbed in elevation to the sequoias. We'd come back into Three Rivers and immediately jump into the river behind our cabin to cool off. We had our share of excitement this trip, including running into a bear on the trail early in the morning before the park was open.
