A quick trip to Cali.

My quick trip to California, came via helping my friend’s mom Carol move to Groveland, CA to be closer to her daughter.

After the driving, and unloading of the furniture came a little time to explore. There was even time for a trip to the Schulman Grove in the white mountains.

My short visit to the grove was really amazing. I had been wanting to visit for many years, and during a recent trip I was able to make it happen thanks to a great friend of mine Elisabeth Barton. She is part of Echo Adventure Cooperative, a coop for adventure guides in the Yosemite area. On your next trip to California you need to visit their site to book your adventure.
