Anne and Scott's Vacation 2009 Sequoia Page

The final stage of our 2009 vacation was a stop in Sequoia. We camped one last night in Sequoia on the way home. We picked the campground and the campsite almost by random while planning the trip and lucked out. When registering with the ranger, he informed us that, in his opinion, we had selected the best campsite in the entire campground. While we were skeptical, we found out that we agree with the ranger. Only minutes after getting the camp set-up, several deer wondered right through the site. While we did not see any other wildlife, we heard a large animal later in the night while sitting by the campfire that was most likey a bear because it sounded like it was crunching through a log looking for insects, though we were never able to view the animal making the noise. While sleeping, I also heard a number of lager animals walking past the campsite, but was unable to determine what kind of anmals they were.
