The Mighty Junebugg – a June of all Trades


Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park: Day 3

We woke up early because #1 it was hot as hell in the tent but #2 because we were supposed to pack up camp and get on the road with enough time to see Crystal Cave, Moro Rock and Crescent Meadow on our way home. It was Sunday and we all had things to do back home the next day. Over breakfast we were talking about how we didn’t really get to see everything or spend enough time there. We talked ourselves into staying another day and headed out to enjoy the forest…

We took a pic before saying good bye to our neighbors Kristina & Loren who were headed next to Death Valley and then Grand Canyon
