Yosemite- Hodgon Meadow and the Giant Sequoia's of Toulomne Grove

lLocated on the north west edge of Yosemite. I'd camp here as a last resort primarily because many of the site(s) are hilly, and with a tent that doesn't work so well.  However its not far from The Toulomne Grove of Giant Sequioas. Because of the crowds we decided to go here versus the more known Mariposa Grove. The total length of the walk was about 2 miles- downhill on the way in-that means its all up on the way out. In all we saw over a dozen Sequoia's. One you can walk through. Another is a fallen Sequioa that gives you great perspective on its size. Most of us are able to stand in it and it seems to go on quite a length. 
There were a few others on the trail, but on a busy day in August we didn't feel crowded here.
This is a great spot on the way to or from Tioga Pass away from the hustle of the Valley.
