On the day that we spent on the Sequoia side, we visited Moro Rock. I'd never heard of it until this visit. But, I found out that it's actually quite famous. I even saw a picture of one of our past presidents standing at the top. It's a huge granite dome, perched on the side of the mountain, 4,000 feet above the canyon below. A 300' climb to the top and outside edge of it provides 360 degree views of the Great Western Divide or the western side of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range. It's also very exposed to the elements...
There were prescribed burns going on that day. So, the air was very hazy.
But, if you look closely, you can see a road winding up through the mountains below.
It's another way up to Sequoia from the valley below.
There it is...the top!
Moro Rock was a fun little adventure. And, for my daughter,
an accomplishment that deserved a souvenir pin for making it to the top!
