It’s been a minute since my last post,
but now I actually have a minute to share all the reasons I’m on cloud nine.
I visited Sequoia National Park
I’m 27-years-old, California born and raised, yet the closest I’d been to a Sequoia was my Pinterest board of places to see before I bite the dust. On August 23rd, my bf of eight or so years (we don’t really keep precise count) went on a getaway trip to take a peek at this world wonder.
We stayed at the amazing Rio Sierra Riverhouse in Three Rivers, CA along the river.
It had this view.
Need I say more?
The day of our visit into the Sequoia National Park on August 24th, we took the Congress Trail to check out the bigger Sequoias in the area and wow, were they spectacular.
No joke– when walking up to one of these trees you can’t help but feel a sense of reverence. These were around for thousands of years and are the largest living things in the world.
They’ve seen some pretty gnarly things in their day.
The last stop along the trail led us to a Sequoia grove called, The House. It was a great way to end our secluded tour, and it’s here where I received the biggest surprise ever.
wait for it…
I’m fucking engaged!
That’s right, ladies and gents– the show you’ve all been waiting for– coming soon to a theater near you in 2015:
The future Mrs. Coates
Planning is underway, so expect more (and more) wedding posts.
