Sequoia: Sufferfest 2008 pt. 2

The first stop on this summers' trip was Sequoia National Forest. Of course it's well known for its trees, but there's so much more. Who would have thought some of the worlds biggest trees, high alpine lakes, and the tallest mountain in the lower 48 states could all be in the same place? It was a beautiful place, rivaling Yosemite and Yellowstone in my opinion.

We took a a few days to hike about 50 miles of the historic John Muir trail, and finishing out on top of Mt. Whitney. The dads dragged along, and eventually everyone made it to the top. The sun was intense, and a t-shirt could be worn until the very top of Mt. Whitney. Almost exactly two years before the whole crew was battling arctic winds on top of Mt. Rainier. Again, I am lazy and don't feel like typing much, so here is few thousand words, in photo form.
