Happy 129th park anniversary, sequoias can live up to 3,000 years, They are usually more than 20 feet in diameter and up to 35 feet across. It would take six people stretched out head-to-toe to match this width. See the second photo with my family. If you decide to visit Sequoia National Park, go to Kings Canyon too. #the59parks #nationalparks #sequoianationalpark #kingscanyonnationalpark #neverstopexploring #keepitwild #wildernessculture #wanderglobal #instatravel #travel #hikingadventures #nature #naturelover #optoutside

JMT Day 14: Wenk tent site 10.02 under Pinchot Pass to Middle Rae Lake (11.1mi) I wake up in the morning after a harrowing evening and discover I am camped at a beautiful campsite. Since entering Kings Canyon NP, the JMT鈥檚 MO is: climb up a river valley to a hanging valley, go over a high pass connecting two glacial basins, start following the trickling headwaters of another creek, creek turns to cascade as you descend a hanging valley, follow the creek as it meanders through woods and then meadows, junction with another fork of the river, follow the new creek up, up, up... repeat. Just when you think 鈥淲hose idea was it to build this trail that goes incessantly up one canyon and down another?!鈥, you get to Dollar Lake and discover another alpine paradise, Rae Lakes Basin. Such is the JMT, like an emotionally abusive romantic partner that is just so beautiful and talented you are willing to endure the ups and downs and utter indifference to you. (Pictured: view from my tent in the morning 鈥 I think that鈥檚 Pyramid Peak?; Fin Dome from Dollar Lake 鈥 it looked like one of the Tetons had come down to vacation in the Sierra; the Painted Lady from Middle Rae Lake) #jmt2019 #johnmuirtrail #kingscanyonnationalpark #dollarlake #raelakes #ifyouloveuphillsanddownhills

It鈥檚 not often I go completely MIA for a week but the past 7 days have been nothing short of phenomenal, it鈥檚 no wonder you haven鈥檛 heard a peep from me! I鈥檝e been so busy road tripping throughout the States the past couple of months that I almost forgot just how incredible my second home of California is. Beginning with an epic sunset over the Golden Gate Bridge, followed by a 2 day road trip on the PCH and ending with 3 days in the wilderness of Sequoia & Kings Canyon, the past week has taught me that I don鈥檛 even need to travel more than 2 hours from home to experience the most astonishing sights (check my stories to see more!) Back on the grind today as I attempt to resume blog posts from my National Park adventures this summer! Keep your eyes peeled for more tips, tricks, first-hand insight and inspo to getting out and exploring the US鈥檚 wild nature!

Windblown at the top of Lembert Dome in Yosemite NP! Reminiscing about my recent adventures with @fxckinjustin 馃枻 We drove over 1,200 miles in 6 days down the NoCal coast through Big Sur and multiple National Parks. I had the time of my life playing in the trees, exploring crystal caves, camping with bear warnings every 15 feet, witnessing the largest living organism on earth, hiking up some wild shit, and traversing through the unknown. 馃馃徏Nature is humbling. Infinite love and respect to Big Sur, Sequoia NP, Kings Canyon NP, and Yosemite, each as magnificent as the other. 鈥 #zuzu #zuzubee #travel #travelphotography #california #yosemite #nationalpark #roadtrip #love #nature #sequoianationalpark #yosemitenationalpark #kingscanyonnationalpark #shouldhaverentedtheminivan

JMT Day 13: Upper Palisade Lake to some small tarn under Pinchot Pass (14.6mi) September 16, 2019, a day that will live in infamy for anyone who was on the trail at the time. This was a brutal day. I had to do one long (15 mile) day between VVR and Onion Valley to make my resupply in Independence and the elevation gain/loss between Mather Pass and Pinchot Pass is the smallest, so I picked this as my first two pass day and it happened to be the day of the terrible, awful, very bad, no good wind storm. After coming over Pinchot Pass, the wind was so strong I had to stop and plant my poles to keep from falling over every time a gust picked up. Having hiked over 14 miles on the cold blustery day, I was over it. (In another story, the wind had snatched my last 3 squares of toilet paper...) I looked for the first viable campsite, somehow managed to put up my tent, tied the guyline above my head to a tree so at least my tent wouldn鈥檛 slap me in the face, ate two Clif bars and went to bed around 6, when it was still bright and PCTers were still walking by. This was the first and only time on the trail that I went somewhere else, listening to Desert Solitaire on audiobook on my phone, and didn鈥檛 want to be 鈥減resent鈥. My tent blocked the wind, but quickly filled with fine black dust sieved through the no-see-um mesh under my tent fly. I just pulled my sleeping bag over my head to ignore it. For days after, my hands would turn black touching any of my gear. (Pictured: view south of Mather Pass and view south of Pinchot Pass... so many lenticular clouds showing how crazy windy it was.) #jmt2019 #johnmuirtrail #type2fun #matherpass #pinchotpass #kingscanyonnationalpark

Day 18 - We woke early, we knew we had a tough 3k foot elevation gain to accomplish. The sun reached us deep in the valley just as we finished packing up our campsite. We were not the only early risers, dozens of small squirrels were everywhere, clipping pine cones from trees and sending them falling a hundred feet to their comrades below, all the while snickering loudly. Caught a photo of one of the ground crew grabbing a recently fallen pine cone. The early morning sun was enhancing the fall aspen trees colors to the max. The golden stair case was a grueling 3k foot slog. But we made it and were rewarded with lake to jump into, and to reunite with Joe.

JMT Day 12: Little Pete Meadow to Upper Palisade Lake (13mi) Le Conte Canyon is gorgeous in the morning light, dramatic as Yosemite Valley. But chased by mosquitos, I make it 8 miles by 11 AM and am actually relieved to reach the dry and exposed Golden Staircase and climb above the mosquito filled meadows and forests. I meet a Mammoth local in the morning who warns me that the wispy clouds indicate precipitation moving in tomorrow and contemplate heading over Mather Pass, but I find a nice tent site above Upper Palisade Lake just as the wind starts to pick up. I figure I have the last sheltered tentsite (whitebark pines are my friends) for 5 miles at least, so I make camp early and do some washing instead. #jmt2019 #johnmuirtrail #lecontecanyon #kingscanyonnationalpark #goldenstaircase #upperpalisadeslake

Seeing these trees in person is like a religious experience. The sheer size and mass of these living things is hard to comprehend. You would think after a while, seeing big trees would get boring or old pretty quick, but that was not the case for me. Even the "smaller" ones are huge. #kingscanyonnationalpark #nationalparklife #nationalparkphotography #nationalparkgeek #nps #nationalpark #findyourpark #national_park_photography #nationalparkpass #nationalparkfans #pictureourparks #tree #treephotography #treesofinstagram #treeporn #treephoto #instatree #ilovetrees #kingscanyon #sequoiatrees #sequoia #massive #lensbible #aweinspiring #hikecalifornia #cali #caliphotographer #california #caliphotography #californiaphotographer

Day 11 - 9/5/19 - Mile 140.2 to Rosalie Lake M159.7 - 19.5 Miles, 189.2 Total Miles - 6:40 am to 6 pm - Most Cloudy 60鈥檚 to 79鈥檚 - Day 4 w/ Rain - Pass(es): None. . Today was our second resupply of the trip. After a good nights rest @scottyidg and I made good time getting to #RedsMeadowResort . The plan was to get lunch, and we nailed it! . We saw a lot of people being so close to the resort and the frequency grew as we got closer. The resort itself was a zoo by our standards. . We got lunch, resupplied and I charged my external battery some. We got our first sprinkle of a few showers that afternoon as we packed. . After we left the resort it was a lot of up to get to #RosalieLake where we camped. The #PCT and #JMT spilt after Red鈥檚 and I must say the JMT side of the valley might have more climbing but it鈥檚 some much more pretty. . I really enjoyed the afternoon and the views. It was a great day on the trail. The light at the lake was amazing during sunset. #jmt2019 #itsbetteroutside #landscapephotography #kingscanyonnationalpark . LINK IN BIO for full journal of trip.

Sequoia National Park. A walk in Muir Grove. No picture can do these Giant Sequoia trees justice. You have to see these in-person. 鈥淚 am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news.鈥 -John Muir

All decked out 馃樄馃 Would I change out any gear? Maybe, but only a few pieces. I ended up using almost all of the gear I brought. Btw, synthetic shirts stink, real bad, but they are ideal otherwise. Sun gloves prevent blisters on backs of hands and also cancer. Trekking poles hold you up when you鈥檙e on the side of a mountain and your legs are noodles after putting one hundred Sierra miles on them in a week. Say yes to hats and sunglasses. Doesn鈥檛 matter what kind, just protect yo self 馃尀
