my son has a position in the public schools, as that will then naturally be my headquarters, we have thought that, other things being equal, the Sequoia National Park, or nearby regions like the Kaweah, would be preferable for us; and next to that possibly the Yosemite.Would we find it possible to live in the Sequoia National Park for a year? Do the snows grow too deep? Could we get a cabin? And supplies? And mail?Or would there be pleasant, secluded places, yet convenient to supplies, in the foothills below the Sequoia Park, on the Kaweah River?We don't wish to get into the deep snow.What you say about the Yosemite & the possibility of living there all winter interests us very much. How deep does the snow get on the north side of the valley? And how many months does it lie on the ground? Does the store you refer to keep open all winter? And can we get all necessary food supplies as well as camping outfit there? Could we lease a cabin within accessible distance of the store - so we could get to it without snow-shoeing? We should prefer a cabin to a tent, if we can possibly get it05530
