On our last day in California, we took a drive to Calaveras Big Trees State Park. We stopped at the ranger station to pay our park fee, and ask if it was OK to bring Wylla into the park. The rules stated "no dogs", but said nothing about cats, so the friendly ranger said she was welcome.
We took a mile and a half hike, which is about how long Wylla is willing to be carried, and explored the giant trees. Craig's cousin Bryce came with us too, and took a turn carrying Wylla. We did put her down briefly when she got fidgety, and she walked straight and steady on the trail for fifty feet - a new record for Wylla!
The park was peaceful and quiet, and the giant trees were huge and awesome. After spending several days in the California sun and heat, we all enjoyed this outing in the shade.
