Sequoias are monstrously big trees with a beautiful brown-orange bark. Idealistic as we are, we actually thought Sequoia National Park is a forest just with these trees. But as unique as these trees are, Sequoia N.P. is a “normal” forest, as we know it from Switzerland, but with some wonderful Sequoia trees in it. So, besides our small disappointment, it’s a beautiful park and you feel like in a fairy tale. If there wouldn’t be all this tourists (like us 🙈). Although there is not high season yet, and lots of streets, campgrounds and picnic areas are still closed, it’s just packed with people and it was difficult to be alone at some points which took a bit the romantic touch of the park.
To get into the National Park, again you’ll wait:
Sequoia National Park:
If you enter from the South (via Three Rivers) you’ll start at the bottom and then it goes up and up and up… until the Sequoia’s start.

Climbing up the stairs is well worth for the beautiful view above Sequoia N.P.
