August 30 – September 2, 2013
What a fun Labor Day weekend! We drove south to meet Leslie in Kings Canyon for the long weekend. We went on all sorts of hikes, ate all sorts of camp food, and visited both Kings Canyon + Sequoia National Parks. Despite the smokey skies to the northwest of us, we had really beautiful weather. These parks are just beyond beautiful. The trees are HUGE and there are places to explore for miles and miles. We even got to see a bear in the wild! Sadly I can’t remember all the hikes we went on, but I’d totally go again. Anytime you’re with two of your best friends exploring it’s sure to be a great time. We were definitely missing Nolan though … oh the commitments of medical school!
And just for fun, John Mayer’s new album, Paradise Valley had just dropped, so it became the soundtrack to our adventure whenever we were in the car.
