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.
