    1. Actually it is neither. It is Sequoia National Forest which surrounds the park, but is less crowded. There are many Sequoia groves in the forest as well as the National Park. I like the National Park best in winter if the road is open as it is magical and uncrowded.

  1. Cindy,

    I had not expected this evening to bring such a magical journey.
    You have taken me from a cold and rainy November day right back
    into the heart of fall. What a gift!! Thank you!


  2. Love these photographs of such a lovely place! You have a gift for capturing the essence of nature at the precise moment with your camera, well, with your eye first, I should say! Great post! My greetings and all the best!

  3. Third time around, Cindy. This post reminds me that we are part of nature – that we belong to this earth, to the soil and rock that sustains our steps. Gravity! I was reading an article about the need to find a way to bring gravity to space. When we are in zero-G, our muscles atrophy quickly, we are no longer able to maintain our posture and we can lose up to up to 20 % of our calves and leg muscles. Earth is our home, BUT we are curious creatures and our need to explore will continue…who knows. It’s a new decade approaching. I’m delighted that we are entering 2020 together.

    1. Interesting. I remember Scott Kelly had trouble walking after he returned to earth after 340 days on the international space station. Sounds like ‘Occupy Mars’ still has some details to hash out. It puzzles me that some people may actually think we can leave this planet if we ruin it irretrievably. I also look forward to sharing 2020 with you Rebecca. Another year with my great blogging friend. I wonder how many it’s been!

  4. Love all the beautiful colors of fall and nature scene. Hope you had a really nice Thanksgiving and have a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones and family. God bless you and yours, Cindy.

    1. Yes, I am sure it is different, which keeps things interesting. The Sierras can get very intense winters with huge amounts of snow which is good for skiing and it can get very cold too. Happy Holidays Alexander.

    1. Yes, especially in the National Forest in non-touristy magnets. If you want no crowds in the National Park, wait till winter and you will experience the sequoias in the snow by yourself.
