after this giant sequoia encounter, we pointed our bikes onto dirt roads and trails that would take us from 7500 feet to 750, in the midst of kings canyon. about as epic as it comes (it's also easier to take photos on days that aren't 10000+ft of climbing across 100 miles of 90 degree weather).

look close: kings river in the bottom right and snowy peaks up above
the sorts of features to behold in this empty wilderness
it's hard not to sound like a surfer when talking about this
