Sequoia Retreat
July 1 - 4, 2011

The Place

Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks contain big trees, high peaks, and deep canyons, but the diversity goes far beyond that.
Located in the southern Sierra Nevada range, the parks’ elevations extend from 1,300 feet (418m) in the foothills to
14,491 feet (4,417m) at the summit of Mount Whitney, the highest mountain in the contiguous 48 states.
Plunging in the opposite direction far below the surface are over 200 marble caverns, many with endemic cave fauna.

Cascades of Kings River

This huge variation in the landscape contributes to the collage of habitats that create a rich assemblage of terrestrial, aquatic and subterranean ecosystems. Here one can observe a vast diversity of plants and animals representing an array of adaptations.

Hikes
Due to the unusual winter weather this year, we may not be able to hike to the elevations we had originally planned.As of June 20th crampons and snowshoes were needed beyond Panther Gap. We will hike where we are able to without snow/ice gear.
