first day in the park and it wasn't crowded yet, so we decided to make a long loop in the giant forest. started at the sherman tree, and had it nearly to ourselves. sierra was definitely mind blown.

did a nice loop on congress, trail of the sequoias and log meadow/crescent meadow loops. with tons of wildflowers (lupine) and fern with magnificent forest smells all day. warm but not unbearable. hard to find a more pleasant walk in the woods. huge sequoias everywhere. also checked out round meadow. we saw a couple goofy marmots. aside from the areas near sherman and the crescent/log trailheads, we saw almost nobody at all. amazing

After my bear encounter I decided to run my planned route in reverse. Starting from Crescent Meadow I ventured through the Giant Forest to the Museum, on the Moro Rock Trial to Moro Rock and back through to Crescent on the Sugar Pine Trail. I made a side trip on the Big Trees Trail and saw three more bears! A mother and her two cubs were in a meadow on the back side of the Big Trees loop. It was an exciting morning running though the Sequoias and seeing four bears!
