    Sequoia Fall Wonderland


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     ChrisMorrow and her husband were checking into the Wuksachi Lodge in California's Sequoia National Park for a three-day hiking adventure when they met Richard "Yogi" Bair, as he's known. When not hiking the forest, he is the bellman at the lodge. 'A smart guy in his 50's enjoying life to the fullest,' she said. 'I loved his attitude and asked if he wanted to go on a hike with us.'

    I climbed the steps to Moro Rock and explored the Giant Forest with Richard 'YOGI' Bair. Yogi has been going off the grid hiking 500 miles in Sequoia Park during the summer since 1987.

    Enjoy the fall photos from the Sequoia Park and video with Yogi!
