Thursday, July 4, 2013 - After exiting Yosemite N.P. thru the South Entrance (at around 5:15 pm), we traveled south on CA-41 to Fresno, CA.  It was a nice town, a busy main road with shops, restaurants and all kind of businesses.  Overnight accommodation was nothing to write about, standard room, reasonable rate, speedy and friendly check-in but the next morning, we encountered a check-out clerk with an attitude!  No good morning, no smiling and only a half-A==; "thank you".  When we said, "Have a good day", this "I-am-too-good-to-be-working-here" clerk did not even look up when she said, "You too" and of course, no smiling!  We did not allow such bad customer service ruining our day. 
It was a beautiful sunny 4th of July when we arrived at Sequoia National Park - "home to the largest tree in the world, the deepest canyon in the U.S., and the tallest mountain peak in the lower 48 states".  
Walking among these giant ancient trees ranks my Top-10 favorite experience.  All I could say was "Wow" when looking at the large trunk and looking up wondering if I climbed up to the top of the tree, I would be able to reach the sky.  Perhaps Benjamin Tabart got the idea for writing the book "Jack and the Beanstalk" after having been to Sequoia National Park! 
I bet even Yao Ming felt like a "shortie" at Sequoia N.P.
