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.
