Getting into the big trees. This one is just a baby...



You need a BIG saw to clear trails up here!





This is a nice giant by the trail...

My new cabin in the woods, made from one piece of living wood!

RR Part two from 7-29-2014...Night ride!


These trees are amazing, I like to go up there and just chill in the forest..

nice view from the inside of the tree house.

here's the outside view of the tree house, it's still alive!



Tight squeeze here.

there are actually two trees here...

Cool stuff!





single track in the dark riding the LC4...



I rode the mountain in the dark, started at 6:00PM yesterday, got home at 2:30 AM this morning. Excellent night ride!

That's all for now...see ya on the next Sequoia Night Ride, coming soon to a forest not near you.

Great idea, lets pick a weekend in September...3 days, 600 miles, just in Sequoia.

We'll make it the comprehensive Sequoia/Kings Canyon tour... On two wheels, dirt routes.
