We also hiked up to an area where two small rivers meet. We were the only ones on the trail and with the flowing water, and high elevation. It was a perfect stop to snack and read.
There are warning signs throughout the park with in regards to the Bears. But we never saw any.
Our last hike was to giant sequoias. Their size is unbelievable. Anxious to see more at Sequoia National Park. We are on our way now!!
