Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park

By Sep 6th 2010 No Comments »

A land of big trees, deep canyons, tall peaks and flowing rivers…

Sequoia National Park has the largest trees in the world and Kings Canyon is one of the deepest canyons of its kind in North America. Mount Whitney, on the eastern border of Sequoia, is the highest peak in the continental United States. The parks are home to hundreds of different birds, mammals, fish, reptiles, insects and amphibians and to thousands of plant and tree species. Miles and miles of rivers flow thorough the parks’ 865,257 acres.

Our first stop was at the Kings Canyon Visitors Center- and I’m so glad it was! While there we watched a ten minute film about the parks. After the film we knew exactly how we wanted to tour the park…

We drove through Kings Canyon on Scenic byway to roads End. A breathtaking, beautiful drive that winds you though cliffs, rivers and mountains and offers many opportunities to stop and take in the scenery around you. It was a very impressive drive.
