Next we drove around to the Stevens Canyon entrance and hiked the Grove of the Patriarchs trail. A flood a few years back had destroyed the bridge to the grove, but it has now been rebuilt. It seemed like an old tree had recently fallen over, perhaps from the flood's storm. The girls had fun running along the boardwalk trail and checking out the huge trees.
Though there were no mountain views the trip was a great success.
