The entire 3 miles of this trail was just breathtaking. The photos don’t compare with the real thing, but they are certainly better than any words I can use to describe the awesome beauty of this place.
We drove back down the mountain to the Grove of the Patriarchs where we found a picnic table in the shade for our lunch. We wanted to see the big trees, of course, so we did the short 1-mile nature walk through this old growth forest.

Plenty hot and ready for an ice-cold glass of tea, we jumped in the truck, turned the AC up as high as it would go, and headed for home. Hopefully, this will be the last day for these record high temperatures and we will get back to something more closely resembling normal.

We do not yet have a plan for tomorrow.
