Visitors are awed when standing beneath some of the world’s largest and oldest trees which adorn these parks. The rushing turquoise river (winding down Kings Canyon), which is jumping with white froth in springtime, creates quite a sight to behold.
Wildlife is often spotted near picnic areas, in meadows, and along the edge of the roads. In Kings Canyon, there are picnic tables near a waterfall; so visitors can enjoy the sight and sound of it while eating. The hiking trails and meadows are lovely; in spring the waterfalls and rivers are rushing, and in autumn the colors are sensational.
This section of the book also includes: Sequoia National Forest, and towns outside the parks like Three Rivers, Fresno, Sanger, Oakhurst, and more.
Note: Lodging, Eateries, Kid Faves, Wheelchair Activities, and a fact-filled Appendix are listed.
