Sequoia National Park, May 2007

We took a quick trip up to Sequoia. Most of the trails were pretty snowy. On our long hike to Heart Lake above Lodgepole, we didn't have snowshoes and had to "post hole" through deep soft wet snow (in other words, our boots punctured the crust and our footprints looked like post holes). But our first view of the lake made it all worthwhile:

There was no one else for miles around, and the lake was still partially frozen:

On our drive back to the Montecito resort, we passed a couple of early-season bears tearing up a log, looking for grubs:

We took a short hike to Lost Grove. Click on the picture and look carefully at the ground between the bases of the trees:
