Mariposa Grove is a wonderful place to hike. They have numerous hiking trails and you can choose from easy to strenuous, one to four hours. The trees are very gorgeous, handsome, and imposing. I did not know many tree species, but I now know red wood and sequoias trees. They become my favourite. In Japan, we believe that a god lives in every creature. It is Shinto religion. There is a god in a tree, too. I felt as if I were surrounded by many tree gods. This thought made me blessed and happy, but at the same time I was worried that a bear might show up after his long hibernation and come up to me. I was hiking and thinking about how to deal with the situation at the same time. This was my solution: I had a bag of goldfish crackers in the bag. I would throw them at the bear to divert his attention in case of the attack. Is it a clever idea, isn’t it?! Of course, there was no bears at the time of my hiking! I touched, hugged, and smelled the massive sequoias trees. I felt the living divine energies, and the hike there was one of the most pleasurable times of my trip.
