Visalia, Sequoia & Moro Rock

Over 3,000 miles, 12 states, 6 days, and lots of sites and adventures, we made it to our final destination from Vegas, passing by the largest thermometer on the way.

We headed into town for the Farmer’s Market and Waiter’s Race.

On Saturday morning, my mom and I went into town to the spa to celebrate an early birthday for her. Although we did a lot of walking in Arizona and Nevada, the massages were much needed and after 75 minutes of bliss we were feeling much better and less sore from all the driving the past week.  We walked down the street to have lunch at Char. Maybe it was because I was starving, but the Fig e Fromage may be the best sandwich I’ve ever had. They also have a variety of popcorn options. Oh, and having beer, wine  and liquor at delis, pharmacies and grocery stores is going to take a lot to get use to.

After lunch, we headed to Sequoia National Park to Moro Rock. It was low 70’s in Visalia, but by the time we got to the top of the mountain, it had dropped to the low 40’s.

We were in the clouds most of the day, and had to wait several times for the sky to clear to be able to take a clear picture.

From the Grand Canyon, to Sequoia, my mom clearly worked on conquering her fear of heights. IMG_6008 IMG_6010 IMG_6011 IMG_6012 IMG_6013 IMG_6014 IMG_6015 IMG_6017 IMG_6018 IMG_6019 IMG_6020 IMG_6021 IMG_6022 IMG_6029 IMG_6030 Higher than the birds. IMG_6031 IMG_6033 IMG_6034 IMG_6035 IMG_6036 IMG_6042 Maybe she didn’t quite conquer her fear yet.IMG_6044 IMG_6045 IMG_6047 IMG_6049 IMG_6057 IMG_6058 IMG_6067 IMG_6069 IMG_6074 IMG_6075 IMG_6076 IMG_6080 IMG_6081 IMG_6083  IMG_4582 IMG_4581 IMG_4580 IMG_4579 IMG_4577 IMG_4574 IMG_4573 IMG_4572 IMG_4571 IMG_4570 IMG_4569 IMG_4568 IMG_4564 IMG_4563 IMG_4562 IMG_4561 IMG_4560 IMG_4559 IMG_4558 IMG_4556 IMG_4555 IMG_4554 IMG_6084 IMG_6085 IMG_6087 IMG_6088 IMG_4583IMG_4549IMG_6090 IMG_6091 IMG_6092 IMG_6093 IMG_6094 IMG_6095 IMG_6096 IMG_6098 IMG_6101
