Ted's Big Perimeter Ride - Day 38




I woke up early looking forward to a nice day of Yosemite and Sequoia and Kings Canyon riding and sightseeing. While I was breaking camp, Frankie, one of the nearby campsite occupants came over to check out my bike. We chatted and he invited me over for a 'Steak and eggs breakfast', I certainly could not refuse. The group of 5 was just out touring the area on bikes and with support vehicles. They had EVERYTHING a cosmopolitan kitchen would have. Many thanks to you my friends for a wonderful breakfast and welcoming encounter.

After the Yosemite ride I swung South and diverted into the Sequoia and Kings Canyon parks. The scenery was beautiful and again I will let the pics provide the details.

Here in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks stands one of the world's largest groves of the world's largest trees. Redwood Mountain Grove covers five square miles with more than 2,100 giant sequoias larger than 10 feet in diameter.
