Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Parks....Vacation!

There are many great things about homeschooling.  One of my favorites is taking vacations after everyone else has gone back to school.  We just spent four days in Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Parks.  Our base was a cabin at Hume Lake

This is the view from the top of Moro Rock. I nearly died, but I did make it to the top. Taking a quarter-mile trail to this national park’s Moro Rock site, you climb nearly 400 stone steps to the top of the barren rock (6,725-foot elevation).

We stopped here for a picnic but decided against it...

The tree in the center of the photo is the The General Sherman tree. The General Sherman Tree in Sequoia National Park is the largest (by volume) tree in the world.

Happy cows!  What a beautiful view they have.

This is a view from the road heading down to Cedar Grove.  Cedar Grove is located in the deepest canyon in the United States. 

 We got to visit Boyden Cavern. 

A glimpse inside the cavern.

The Kings River runs along the bottom of the canyon.

All this right in our back yard.
