Summer 2007 Road Trip: Day 4

Day 4

Leenah in the CarToday was mostly a travel day, as we drove from San Francisco, CA to Three Rivers, CA just outside Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park. We left San Francisco at 1pm and arrived in Three Rivers by 630pm, checking in to the Lazy J Ranch Motel, an Americas Best Value Inn.
The motel was surprisingly pleasant, with a king-size bed, a microwave, refrigerator and TV with DVD/VCRplayer. It also had a pool.
Here is a view from the car of the Kaweah River Valley on the way to Three Rivers.After checking in we drove immediately into the park and although the Visitors' Center was closed we paid our park fee ($20 for a week's multiple entry into both Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks). We took the picture below at Hospital Rock.

We had dinner (at the recommendation of the front desk at the Lazy J Ranch motel) at Serrano's Mexican Restaurant and although the service was shockingly slow, at least we could eat outside with our canine companion in tow and the food was excellent and plentiful. I had the costillas en salsa (pork ribs) with refried beans and rice and the other half had the broiled chicken salad. We had enough food left over for a snack in the morning and the doggie enjoyed those bones!
