We did Sequoia today, it was crazy beautiful. Much more piney/tree filled than the drive through Yosemite. There were parts of the drive where the sun hadn't even broke through the trees. The drive had a lot more valley view which was incredible.  The trees, W O W. They are some big big 'ol trees, absolutely maginificant. The park was less crowded than Yosemite.  The trails through the giant tree forest were all paved. I was surprised when I felt some of the living sequoias, how fibrous the surface was ( kind of like cedar), and knocking on it sounded hollow.
   Getting to Sequoia and travelling away from it to get to the hotel, we drove through miles and miles of orchards (Apples and tons of nuts), really pretty.
