I love traveling and visiting National Parks.  I have been to Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Yosemite National Park and Sequoia National Park.  I recently visited Sequoia National Park with one of my friends and contributors on The Mommy-Files (Caroline) and loved it!  In fact, I got a ton of really great pictures on my trip.  I was so amazed by how big and beautiful the trees were.  It was overwhelming how beautiful and giant these Sequoias are!  Have you ever been there?

Sequoia National Park not only had giant trees, but they also had hiking trails.  The views from the trails were gorgeous!  I tried to go on one of the trails, but my fear of heights took over and I just couldn’t hike along the trail that was so close to the edge with a long drop beneath.  At least I tried though!

The park had so much to it and there were so many beautiful trees and rocks to see.  I can’t wait to visit Sequoia National Park with Frank and our kids someday!  I will always remember my trips to Sequoia and can remember over and over again with memories I captured on camera.

    I’d love going there since I’m a natural beauty lover.
    Fantastic pictures – thanks for sharing!

  2. That’s such an absolutely stunning national park! We have a state park about 5 minutes away from where I live and while it’s lovely to go there the sight is not as break-taking as at Sequoia. Hopefully one day I’ll be lucky to visit 🙂

  3. Your pics are awesome. Looks like a fun time.

  4. I don’t remember going to a National Park since I was little. That looks so beautiful!

    I used to live in the San Francisco area and we LOVED going to the Sequoia National Park on weekends. It was like walking into a different world where you left you day to day life behind.

  8. I’ve never been to Sequoia, but I’d certainly love to visit. My favorite National Park is Rocky Mountain National Park. I grew up in Colorado, but now live in Maryland. We have a family home in Grand Lake, at one of the entrances to RMNP, I’d like to go once a year, but sadly we only make it out there once every 5 years or so.
