Tingles of vertigo
My second hike in the Sequoia National Park was an easy stroll compared to the strain of Alta Peak the day before. Scenery and sights, however, were no less impressive. The six-mile trail led me from Wolverton to the massive rock of Watchtower and then to the cold waters of Heather Lake. I’ll let the pictures speak for me, even though they can capture only a fraction of the overall breath-taking experience…
The huge rock jutting out into the abyss is the Watchtower.

The journey from Watchtower to Heather Lake…
…really isn’t vertigo-friendly.
