Missions Celebration Big Valley Grace -- 2006

Monday, July 4, 2005 -- We left on our second trip for Columbia about 5:30 a.m. on Monday, July 4th. Spent the whole day at Columbia for the July 4th celebration. We arrived in Columbia about 7:30, drove around the area. Found an old water wheel and wigwam. We starting walking around Columbia about 8:30. Ben and Dara had fun climbing the big rocks.

Here are some pictures of Columbia:

We left Columbia about 4:00, and headed for Big Trees again, to spend one night there. There weren't very many people camped at Big Trees, so we changed our campsite to a more level area. Tuesday, July 5th, we hiked the South Grove trail, where the biggest and oldest in the world tower like silent giants. We hiked the entire loop, including the trail to the Aggasiz Tree, at the end of the trail.

Tuesday, July 5, 2005 -- Here are some pictures from the Big Trees South Grove:

This is me at the Agassiz Tree, at the end of the South Grove trail.  This tree is one of the largest and oldest trees in the world, and must be well over 1,000 years old!!

See my Big Trees South Grove Trail page with lots more pictures!!
