We had such a great time exploring the outdoors this summer and one of those adventures took us to Crystal Cave in Sequoia National Park. We took the drive to Sequoia National Park and the next morning, bright and early, we headed to our Family Tour of the cave. The hike down to the entrance of the cave is the only precaution one should be aware of. It’s way more
There’s a story behind the urgency to have my children receive a bilingual education, but it’s long, very emotional and, ultimately, not relevant to this post.
