lots of fire damage as we drove up to the Giant Forest area
It's not clear why the Crystal Caves were closed
when we got to the General Sherman area, we saw a deer, which was surprising, usually there is no sign of animal life up there.

the General Sherman tree
another shocking thing, we saw a black bear and her cub right near the Sherman tree. She was digging into the bark for a few minutes, but then a ranger shouted and chased her off.
