Pictorial Highlight: SEQUOIA part 2

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 =)

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!)

"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

    Really beautiful pictures, Jan! Love the bear and the coyote especially, and the pictures that show how huge the sequoias are. We see a lot of wildlife around here and I have heard coyotes in the woods but haven’t seen any. Be careful rock-hopping!

      With my knees having regressed, my rock hopping days are pretty much over “/ these pics are mostly from march 2007 when I went up there with mom and jimmy 🙂

      Thanks so much! S/hes actually a coyote, sadly I’ve never seen a wild wolf (in fact, there is literally *ONE* wild wolf living in California, they were extinct in the state until he wandered in northeastern CA in the last few years); that’s the same coyote as the one in the first picture in Part 1 =) Thanks for your comment!

        I saw a coyote once in Malibu. I was kind of scared because I was all alone at night stranded, but just watching him or her was enthralling.
