It had been many years since Julie and I had visited the Sequoia National Park. The forests and vistas of high Sierra rock formations are stunning to behold. The too brief trip gave us a small taste of the deep quiet that is to be found in unmolested nature, and it stimulated my appetite for more backpacking experiences, where one can really sit for a long time in the peace. We stayed at the Stoney Creek Lodge just outside the Park; it did not earn our recommendation for return trips, but it served the basic necessities.
Sadly, pollution from the lower elevations robs this view of some of its’ clarity. Still, from this vantage point (part way up Moro Rock) there is much beauty to be seen. Climbing Moro Rock btw is a great semi strenuous little hike.
