G'day (ha ha ha you wotuldnt believe how many people we have said that to and the reaction we get, ha ha ha). What a beautiful state California is and we havent really even started! After our amazing stay at Yosemite we took a short drive (only 3-4 hours) to the Sequoia National Park. This park is home to the worlds largest tree, not tallest or roundest but largest. They qualify it as largest due to its density and weight, read as worlds fattest tree! Ha ha!

Side note we saw two of the worlds largest this week. We saw the worlds largest tree and the worlds largest wind warm! Cool!

Sequoia trees are these big gigantic trees that grow for hundreds and hundreds of years and just get bigger and bigger. They are quite precious and only grow in certain climates but they grow through out the whole park. We were able to climb up this gigantic rock that overlooks the whole valley. The rock has over 400 steps and whilst it looks easy is quite difficult to climb but worth the effort.In addition to giant trees this National park also has gorgeous mountains, wildlife and plants. And just like the Yosemite we saw bears!!! Two Bears!!! One of them was rolling around in the sand having a merry time, very nice to see in the wild.

We weren't able to camp in the park this time but stayed just 3 miles away at a town called Three Rivers and at the back of our campground was a beautiful river that was lovely to float in and enjoy the surrounding mountains. We have thoroughly enjoyed this magnificent week and the beauty of California, we are looking forward to exploring the coast next.

Love and Peace to you all from, the in awe, Bek and Jesse train.

I am so envious!!!
You are seeing things that I have not seen for living in Ca. for 28 yrs.

The national parks are wonderous and you have a few more to visit.
I hope that you are both well and glad you are not back here, right now- to darn hot and humid- I hibernate like the bears do in winter- just plain miserable!
Enjoyed your blogs and have fun and stay safe- I love you both-G.
