The Valhalla Cirque contains some the largest rock formations in the Sierra Nevada mountains outside Yosemite. This is the largest of the group and is called “Angel Wings.” It is an awesome site, but gets little attention as it is located 17 miles from any road in Sequoia National Park. This was one of the best trips of my life in spite of 5 days with a very heavy pack. Hamilton Falls is a charming little glade located just off the trail. I had to lie on my stomach in a couple inches of freezing water and crawl under willows to get the camera up under the lovely little flowers!
