Black bear; we also saw her two beautiful young cubs, sadly I didn’t get any good shots of them. Mama’s keeping a close eye on us =)
Me saying hi to a beautiful red fir.
The same lovely red fir ❤
More fire scars, along with some sequoia seedlings in front–imagine that one day those tiny babies could in a millenia be as big as the sentinel over them!!
Almost got stuck in the middle of this river rock-hopping. Scary jump required, nearly got swept away.
Showing the PHENOMENAL girth of sequoias, and once again their stunning ability to survive massive wildfires (look at the size of the burn scar!)
General Grant Sequoia tree (I hate they name all these amazing individuals with the names of Indian et. al. killers “/
“Common fiddleneck” flowers; I didn’t notice until I made this Pictorial, but there’s a giant fucking spider on the left flower that almost made me scream when I realized, LOL. And an ant on the right flower who didn’t make me scream =p
