Snow on the Rocks

Taken on winter hike in Sequoia National Park. It was the first time I had ever walked through snow, and it was a good time, shuffling along knee-deep in snow, with no other people but us for miles and miles around.

Sequoia and King's Canyon don't get the kind of publicity Yosemite does-which is sad because they are beautiful wild parks that represent native Californian forest so well. And if you're into that kind of thing, I believe you can find the point in the 48 contiguous states where you are farthest from a road in King's Canyon. I do think that these parks are at their absolute best in winter, when their wild, lonely, stark beauty is highlighted by quiet and snow.
