After our wedding, Erin and I took a trip to California to see some of my family and friends who couldn’t make it to Florida. But we also went to explore some of the best National Parks on the west coast together: Yosemite, Sequoia, and Kings Canyon. We’re calling it a mini-moon because it wasn’t quite a honeymoon, which we still plan to do when work isn’t quite so busy. It wasn’t THAT mini, though. We drove hundreds of miles, from San Francisco to Los Angeles and up and down thousands of feet of elevation each day. We saw the largest trees in the whole world, the giant sequoias, including General Sherman—the very largest. And we took some epic vacation photos!
