    Sequoia, Kings Canyon, Yosemite, Tioga Pass

    I am not a beach guy at all. Once I left Monterey, I headed for the mountains as quick as I could. I found a real nice scenic route that for the most part wound through range land and very few towns or cities.




















    The Sequoias are amazing.

    Climbing Higher




    Obligatry camp shot




    And the next morning...The big trees








    The General Sherman is the largest tree in the world. Some taller, some fatter, but He's the biggest. 2200 years old. Grows the equivalent of 60 regular trees each year.





    And it is a Trophy forum

    Glad you like it.
    A little more

    I head from Sequoia NP to Kings Canyon.


    The parks are right next to each other. Its a fairly short trip, so I had time to enjoy the scenery.












    I went to see the General Grant tree.








    And camping out again


    And the next day I'm off to Yosemite.

    What am I doing wrong or more to the point what are you doing right. :745:

    Thanks to Verdun who also offered to help me.

    I dont post the photos on this site, I use a photo hosting site. Smugmug is one of many, then I just post a link here. If you click on one of my photos it takes you to smugmug.

    Hey Gonzo. The roads all over The Western US are great for keeping the chicken strips skinny. That brings up the only complaint I have with the bike, or rather the tires. The rear tire has the weirdest cupping pattern forming, the rear is starting to squirrel around on me its getting so noticeable. I only have about 5000 miles on the rear tire, and its going to be unridable soon. Plenty of tread, but its just not very comfortable in a tight corner. Wobbles.

    for the photo's  :152:

    5000 mile = 8046.72km

    that's normal to change the tyre.
    I don't have match more.
    I try to reach the 6213mile = 10000km
