Yosemite, King's Canyon & Sequoia National Parks
We were staying in Oakhurst and had a great birding area right outside the RV, adding Nuttall's Woodpecker, Phainopepla, California Towhee, California Thrasher & Oak Titmouse.
Next destination - King's Canyon & Sequoia National Parks.
Once again, breath-taking scenery and massive trees. Pictured here a 320 foot tall Giant Sequoia with a base of 98 feet in circumference. It was amazing to see so many of these over 2,000 year old trees that were thankfully saved for generations to enjoy.
This curious coyote greeted us at one of the park pull-offs. Mule Deer and yet another Black Bear (this was bear #55 for the trip) made up some of the park's rich fauna.
