Kings Canyon National Park

Kings Canyon is intertwined with Sequoia National Park. Kings Canyon is home to the deepest canyon in the United States (8000 feet at the deepest point) along with a lot of great scenery. Wander through the mountain areas, the meadows, the streams, and hike some of the trails for a better view. I came here a bit to early in the all too short season and was prevented from fully exploring the park due to excess snow.

Kings Canyon Scenic Byway

There are several places to stop and explore along the Kings Canyon Scenic Byway. This is the view from the Junction Overlook.

General Grant Tree

The General Grant Tree, a Sequoia, is the third largest tree in the world. It was declared the National Christmas Tree in 1926 and is the only living memorial to those who died in times of war.

    The 2nd world largest sequoia in the Kings Canyon Park impresses very much and reminds me sequoias in the Yosemite National Park. Thank you Jim for sharing!
