High Mountain Adventures

OK, so I lied. In the last post, I said I was going to Kings Canyon National Park, but I was actually in the neighboring Sequoia National Park. I feel silly for making this mistake, but in my defense, they are right next to each other and often referred to together. Anyway, I got back late last night, full of high mountain goodness, from visiting our friend Pat who is working on a trail crew in Sequoia. Here are some of the things I saw on this adventure:

Wildflowers graced our walk!

Our friend Pat said these are called Yellow-Throated Gillia

There’s a trail crew camp nestled in those mountains, just below Hamilton Lake!

Pat loves to cook, and he’s part Polish, so he thought that our coming to visit was the perfect opportunity to make some pierogies from scratch. So we made them in his fully outfitted trail crew kitchen, and they were scrumptious!

    Home-made pierogies on the trail! If you have any hints about how he made them without the filling busting out all over the place when he boiled them, please tell!
