Here are some views from the exposed cliff, Hanging Rock, in Sequoia National Park. Awesome! Today (10/13/2012) was very foggy. Not much of the valley below could be seen. The views were spectacular nonetheless. The large grey (granite) rock to the left is Moro Rock. It will be the next stop on my route. (More on Moro Rock later.)
If today wasn’t foggy, you would be able to see the valley in the canyon below. This includes views of the fertile San Joaquin Valley (made famous by Steinbeck in his novel, The Grapes of Wrath). The climb to Hanging Rock is very easy and as you can see, the views are spectacular.
