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.
There are several places to stop and explore along the Kings Canyon Scenic Byway. Photo 2 shows the view from the Junction Overlook.
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.
