Stantislaus National Forest (more places to go and see)
I cannot take finals anymore. I had to go hitch a ride with some folks who turned out to be pretty friendly. I found myself in Stanislaus Forest in the Sierra Nevadas. It was once the home of the Mi-Wok people, who migrated within these regions for thousands of years. Around the 19th Century, American settlers came in from the east—immigration perpetuated by the Gold Fever. Town use to flourish here with waves of miners looking for riches; these days it is pretty sleepy. There are still tons of things to do, like caverns and giant sequoia forests.
Luckily I averted a snow storm just a day prior, and enjoyed fresh powder snow and sunny skies. (`･ω･´) I borrowed snow shoes and trekked through the forests and mountains.
This song played in my head as I went around.
