Travel Vlog California Sequoia National Park
Check out the last travel vlog video of the series when I started out from Los Angeles and visited Santa Barbara and Ojai. Next I was ready to begin my California road trip. So welcome to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. Getting here from Los Angeles was easy enough. The desert turned into farmland, which turned into the hills. And soon enough, I was driving up along a ridge overlooking a huge wooded valley. Then I entered the gate (I paid a $35 fee) and continued along the Generals Highway. This route pretty much goes straight to General Sherman, the world’s largest tree. You can even drive through the fallen “Tunnel Log” located along the Crescent Meadow Road in Giant Forest. As I mentioned, Sequoia trees are so large because they have evolved several characteristics. Their deep roots allow them to collect a lot of water. Also, their tough bark helps insulate them against fires. Further, the Sequoia trees have tannins which help prevent disease and infection by insects, etc. I highly recommend some hikes in the area. There are stunning views and amazing trees! You can find waterfalls at Marble Falls and Tokopah Falls trails. Check out Alta Peak and Moro Rock. There are also numerous caves. After walking and climbing all over Sequoia National park, I continued my road trip further into northern California. I got an amazing Mediterranean dinner in Madera and ended up relaxing later that night at the hotel in Cupertino. Hope you enjoyed the video. Thanks for watching.
