The Mighty Sequoia Tree

Bears Abound in Sequoia National Park

We ended up seeing 4 bears total, and had one close encounter. A bear visit isn't much fun when you are fixing dinner.

Bears were abundant in Sequoia National Park

It was hot in Death Valley. 129 degrees and it was slightly overcast that day. Set the record for July 6th.

Death Valley didn't look like I thought it would. The valley is located in between two mountain ranges that peak at over 11, 000 feet. Here is 242 feet below sea level. The drastic change in elevation is astounding.

A wild cat at Badwater. Badwater is lowest point in North America at -282 feet below sea level. This little guy was just trying to cool off

The long way around...

Wild donkey's were everywhere.


The Great Salt Lake

The Great Salt Flat - Land so laden with salt that nothing will grow - so white it looks like there was a recent snowstorm. It was so salty, that we went past a huge Morton Salt plant.
