Last year for a mini-vacation around this time we drove up to Carmel and had an awesome time coming down Highway 1. For this year’s edition of an extended Labor Day excursion we’re leaving our zoo in the very capable hands of DogGone Walkin’ pet sitters, hopping in our new Ford Escape this morning and going to Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park for the first time.

Serious tree-hugging to follow.

Hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend.
