Loving Kings Canyon

Here's what the sober and scientific Dr. Joseph LeConte, professor of Geology at UC Berkeley, said when he first visited Kings Canyon: 

"The trail becomes steeper and rougher, and falls more frequent and more beautiful, and the scenery grander and more impressive, until finally as we approached the summit I could not refrain from screaming with delight."

Gotta love those dry academics, huh?

That's P at right, enjoying the view from the area around Ranger Lake as he ate his dinner and took in the whole Sierra crest in SEKI.

He did not scream with delight this time.  But it wasn't the first time he'd seen it, either...
