We drove over 400 miles today. And nearly got to see some amazing sequoia trees. Upon our arrival, we discover that it costs a mere $20.00 to go through. Well worth it, obviously. Except we picked the wrong day to go, as the guard pointed out casually. "Well, you'll need chains for your tires if you go up there. You can rent them down the way a few miles, or if you're in the area, come back tomorrow, it'll be better." Bastard. I mean, "Sure, we'll just drive the 200 miles home and then come back in the morning, no problem." Dammit. But we got some good pictures (sort of) along the way, and the drive itself was quite awesome. And considering that all we did was drive the whole day, I"m awfully exhausted.
