Larry LavertySequoia National Park

Larry Laverty

Yosemite, closer to my childhood home, drew me like a magnet throughout much of my life. But seeing this part of the world later in life, and hoofing up Alta Peak under winter conditions, created an equally strong bond. Lodgepole and its surrounding mountains and trees will always be vivid in my mind.

Date Climbed: May 20, 1996


In 1996, I was working a seasonal maintenance position in SEKI.

Being a "seasonal," I didn't have access to a computer, but I
somehow managed to find Alta Peak and Moose Lake. What a hike!!!

I think I have been to Lodgepole eight or nine times, and have spent at least a week total in the Lodgepole campground. Great place, go check it out.

Can't believe it took me 42 years to get to Sequoia and see the Big Trees! Rob took me to climb Chimney Spire and do the tourist thing looking at the giants, General Sherman and Lodgepole. So glad I have finally seen those amazing, ancient giants and opened my mind to all the historical imaginings. You can almost see a progression of thousands of years animals, native peoples, 49ers, etc. I'm sure all the people stood in awe at the base in exactly the same way. How anyone could cut one down is beyond me. Thanks again Rob, for yet another experience I'll always remember.
