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

The Sherman tree is huge. First time in Sequoia NP and we hit up all the touristy places. Trail was busy, but still able to see it all.

I'm still in awe from my trip to Sequoia NP, and the Sherman Tree Trail was incredible to say the least.
