A nature-lover by heart, Hale Tharp homesteaded the area in 1869, built a summer cabin in the trunk of a fallen Sequoia tree and raised cattle in what is now Sequoia NP.
Complete with a bed, table and bench, shelf, fireplace and window, it looked almost comfortable for the summer. It’s an easy hike from the Crescent Meadow parking lot.
Oh, and BTW, I found plenty of bear scat — not fresh and nobody I knew.
