Yosemite, Kings Canyon, and Sequoia National Parks!

We got home from the west coast late last night and then hit the ground running today. But I wanted to go ahead and share our National Parks video with you guys today because things aren’t going to be slowing down any time soon and I don’t want to get too far behind in blogging. So enjoy a little sneak peak at our time at Yosemite, Kings Canyon, and Sequoia National Parks!


– Most of the footage was taken at Yosemite & Sequoia. The General Grant Tree is really the only thing we saw at Kings Canyon while passing through.

– We took the random shot of me standing on the snow (1:28) to show just how much snow there was in some places. I’m technically standing a couple of feet above the path. You can look behind me in the photo for a park bench that’s half covered in snow for reference.

– It was all amazing, but one of my favorite things was that we celebrated Easter Sunday at Sequoia National Park. We stopped along the Tall Trees Trail and read the resurrection story from Matthew. So so powerful. The snow glistening around us, the bubbling stream, the towering Sequoias, the sun breaking through the trees. It was like being on holy ground. He is risen. 🙂

Love Rach

    • The trees really were so massive! It was hard to comprehend how big they were at times just standing at the base and staring straight up. So amazing!

  7. ahh love watching your travel videos. so cool! and wow, that is a lot of snow when you look at the bench behind you. i’d love to visit all of these places… one day!

    • Haha! It was SO much snow! It was crazy how warm it would be in the towns outside the national parks where we would spend the night compared to how cold it was as we drove UP the mountains! So pretty, though! I hope you get to go someday!

  8. Beautiful! I got the goosebumps just thinking about your Easter experience!!

    That’s a beautiful video! So glad you got to go there. Those trees are a sight to behold and I feel like they just point straight up to their Creator. So beautiful.

    • They truly do! Christopher pointed out that some of these trees were here when Jesus walked the Earth 2,000 years ago which was just amazing to think about.

  12. I NEED to go here. I loved following your trip!

  13. This would be so amazing! Your footage is beautiful! I would love to see the parks of California someday! Also, that sounds like the coolest way to celebrate Easter, ever.

    • It was pretty awe-inspiring. I mean, I love celebrating Easter with our church family. It’s always such a special time to be together. But this was definitely worth missing being with our church family for. So amazing!

  14. You always have the best travel videos!

    What an amaaaazing place to explore! xo

  15. The scenery in this video is GORGEOUS! I’ve never been there. How did you do all that hiking while pregnant?!
