Summer is for Hiking: Nelder Grove sequoias, Sequoia National Forest, June 23 2012

With summer over, I am finding the time to update on the various hikes from the season. A lot of time was spent in the mountains of Yosemite and Kings Canyon. This hike pictured here was into Nelder Grove, an area with original sequoias near Yosemite and near Ansel Adams Wilderness. We took the hike towards the Granddad tree and in June, there were many wildflowers. It is not a difficult hike – at the end one can go further on an adjoining trail but there are no designated markers.
