The mighty Sequoias!
This thing was huge! (still not sure how to rotate pictures in here. Rotate your head instead)
There were some controlled fires going on, which made for a cool effect with the sunlight
This used to be one tree, until my dad split them and pushed them apart
McKinley tree i think?
Our camp spot in Sequoia/Kings Canyon: Azalea - this site was pretty cool actually
We found a bent hatchet in a tree and that became a pretty fun game getting it stuck in this stump. Here's Mike with his first success
Shots, hatchet, reading, and fire. Fun!
Here's out the back of our campsite in Yosemite at Bridalveil Falls
We hiked up on to Sentinel Dome, which was a cool, 1.5 mile-ish hike along stuff like this. The view from atop the dome was insane!

Crazy rocks overhanging at Glacier Point. There was an old photo here of two women standing out there on one leg. Pretty nuts. This is up high!
We hiked to Illouette Falls from Glacier Point and got an awesome view of Half Dome the whole way
Half Dome, Vernal Falls, and Nevada Falls
And then we came to this natural waterslide down by Illouette Falls and it was super awesome! The water felt so good here
Like a little kid
Hands in the air!
So much fun
Even Dad got in on it!
View from the waterslide
Half Dome and Illouette Falls
Half Dome is directly behind us. Whoever took this kinda missed the point of taking a photo right here, but this is still an awesome picture
Campground at Bridalveil Creek
Hiking to Vernal Falls along the Mist Trail
Vernal Falls - about 300 feet tall
Some of the trail is a bit sketchy!
Atop Vernal Falls
Mike at the bottom of Nevada Falls - 600 feet tall
600 feet down. Definitely the scariest view I've ever seen

Wave simulation - we all got tubed here!
Feeding in the kelp forest tank
Fish and tank used as decorations
Jellyfish will never cease to be so weird
Deep sea tank - big fish here
Like hammerhead sharks
awesome sea horse
Point Lobos park/coastline
These guys have such good facial expressions
Otters!!!!!! we think the one on the left had a baby with it too, but it was pretty hard to tell
emerald colored water in some cove
We were all super pumped on this park
Keyholes and awesome coastline.
Mike got to close to the edge and got soaked by a big wave
This lady was all about timing our picture with a good wave
So was her friend over at this spot
Got 8 of em stacked!
Morning in Big Sur at Limekiln park
In the morning we hiked up two trails in Limekiln park. Easy trails that were really good
One ended at these four old kilns built in the 1850s, which they used to put lime in to purify it.
The trail also split and went to this 100-foot waterfall. It was a good morning hike
