Sequoia NP California

Bears & Giants, Sequoia National Park

The mountains of the Sierra Nevada are a welcome relief after the blistering heat of the Californian interior. Sequoia National Park is home to some of the largest trees in the world, the Sequoias, whose yearly bark renewal could form a 60ft tree with bark 1ft thick! The main road winds through dense forest, with glimpses between the trees of a magnificent mountain range – the southern tail of the Sierra Nevadas.

Exploring here was so magical – three of my four brown bear encounters took place in this park. There are endless footpaths to meander along, through Sequoia groves and along alpine meadows. Eagles soar above the canopy and wildlife scurries and scuttles in the undergrowth. It was after walking down to the beautiful expanse of Crescent Meadow that I saw a brown bear happily munching on some vegetation. Sequoia National Park is an idyllic wilderness.
