Sequoia National Park – Snowshoeing

Middle Fork Trail

I am slow in getting this up but a few weeks ago I got a new digital SLR camera and wanted to test it out so I headed up to Sequoia for some hiking/snowshoeing and of course picture taking.  Unfortunately, I didn’t do any camping this time around.  I had to work so I needed to make sure I had internet access.  I was able to get a good deal on a hotel in Three Rivers for three nights so I headed up Thursday evening.

Friday evening I headed into the foothills of the park and did some hiking up to and along the middle fork trail. 

The weather in the foothills was perfect for an evening hike and with the Great Western Divide looming over me I was soon wishing I had my tent and sleeping bag with me.  Alas I did

Dinner on the trail

 not.  So after making myself some dinner I headed back out to get a good night sleep at my hotel eager to get an early start in the morning.

It is great to get back up into the Sierras.  I can’t wait until it get a bit warmer, the snow starts to melt, and I can spend a few days in the backcountry.

More to come…
