A no-work weekend
Published Sunday October 16th, 2005

I left work early Friday and soon after arriving at home, left town with my parents and my sister Andrea. We headed up the I-5 and at around a bit before midnight reached Wukachi Lodge in the Sequoia National Park.

We checked into the lodge and soon found ourselves sleeping. In the morning after eating breakfast we found a hiking trail and headed off for "Heather Lake". I don't recall how long we walked, but it was for quite some time. It slowly got colder as we ascended the side of the mountain and soon clouds rolled in, rather quickly and abruptly. We ate lunch and decided to turn back because we were all starting to freeze. As we walked down the trail, it started to hail/snow. It wasn't a lot of snow, but it was enough to excite those of use who like seeing snow.

We spent the remaining of the day exploring other parts of the park, looking at trees.. looking at more tall Sequoia trees and so forth. In the evening we had dinner, and soon were in bed. The morning came, breakfast passed, and we were on our way about the park again. At around 14.00 we headed on our way back towards the land of Bore.

It was a nice weekend away from Camarillo. My first weekend not working... in a very very long time. I quite enjoyed it. It was a lot of fun. Yeh..

All of the images are available here. But unfortunately they kind of suck. There are even images that are out of focus and under exposed. What the hell? Ugh. I suck. Most of the other photos are rather experimental and none of them very touristy. .. So don't expect typical tourist photographs from the Sequoia trees.

Anyway, that is all for now.
