Sequoia NP – Moro Rock

Tues Sept 27th – after touring around the General Sherman tree, we headed over to Moro Rock, which was supposed to have a wonderful panoramic vista from the top. But, of course, first you have to climb…..In this case, 400 steps going up 300 feet. The design and craftsmanship of the staircase going up to the top of Moro Rock is so impressive, that it is listed on the Register of Historic Places.


As many of you know, I am not a fan of heights, but  with real steps and a hand railing…..I figured that it wouldn’t be that bad……and besides, I didn’t want to miss the view! So……up we climbed……


This is the view looking down the stairs. Going up was challenging…..not in the physical effort….. but a bit challenging to my fear of heights.


But – the view from the top was definitely worth it!

  1. Sue,

    You're doing pretty good with that fear of heights! I'm glad you made it to the TOP!

    I agree, the views were definitely worth it - and you've got to admit it, the hike up there was fun too... At least it was for me!
