A Bike Trip to Death Valley
Sunday, 18 June 2006
Wednesday 14 June. Wawona and Mariposa Grove ride.

Today was a rest day in terms of not moving on as we were staying 2 nights at Wawona. The day dawned with bright blue skies. We decided to go up to the nearby Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoia Trees. Although there was a shuttle bus up there we decided it would be a good idea to ride our bikes up the 1600ft climb to the Grove.

From the top we took a walk up the path among the great trees. The oldest was called the Grizzly Giant and was 2700 years old. Another nearby one had a hole cut through the trunk over 100 years ago for stagecoaches to drive through.

After a fast descent we spent the afternoon relaxing on the porch of the Hotel.

14 miles for the day with 1660ft of climb.
