Yosemite for General Sherman

I’ve got a bit of tree hugger in me and I believe if you’re ever been through the Redwoods or seen a sequoia in real life and enjoyed it, then you probably do too. While on a trip up to Yosemite, we decided to stop off a bit south to see one of the oldest living things on the planet along with his other sequoia friends in Sequoia National Park.

We reserved a site in Yosemite far in advance, which is apparently the only way you can, so the drive south wasn’t so much of an inconvenience as an added bonus after enjoying the many awesome sites a bit further north. There are some hotels and cabins for rent and I’ve booked stuff around there within a few weeks, but it’s definitely best to make a plan and not assume you’ll be able to get something, especially in the summer months.

To get to General Sherman, you take a free trolly up that drops you off and picks you up every so often, then you hoof up into the grove to behold the site of this massive tree that’s been here since before mankind.

Have you done this? What can you add to this jrrny?
