Sequoia in the dark is awesome!

We made it off the mountain and back to Visalia by 10:30.

RR later... I'm going to bed.

Well, its LATER! Rode Renz singletrack at Hollister Hills yesterday. No photos, but a good riding day. Only got up to 80.


I noticed new Sequoia fire restrictions went into place. If you follow the link on that page to the list of approved campgrounds during the fire restrictions, I don't see the name of the favored high-elevation CG you guys showed me on the last trip.

So we can camp there, if no outdoor cooking or fires; or no camping at all? Am I reading this info correctly?

You sir read incorrectly.......no wood fires outside developed recreation sites, our site is developed,campfires and camp stoves are allowed.
Read rule # 1.
You need to hit the vaporizer......

Wicked Sequoia.....in the Dark.

JPaccassi, Styger and myself went for a ride Whensday, 5/1/2013 after a hard day at work. This is what we found....



Missed a turn and ended up here.

Back on track after a 10 mile detour....

Styger on a nice Jeep trail along a river.

JP

Lots of ruts.

A nice place to cool off.

A dangerous bridge.

the ridge



PBR TIME!

A cabin in the Redwoods

Trail soda

the sun going down

a little stump



A disapearing trail.....







JP and "the Light"

We had to saw our way through this little downfall

we were heading down the mountain in the DARK.

Next Sequoia night ride date TBA....
