  • After the fire, I did not think there would be much left. I was wrong! These trees stand the test of time. To just sit in a grove, to smell and listen to to forest. Great gift.

  • You have to see this stuff in person! You may see some folks in the distance on some of my pictures to help you understand just how large these trees are. And I don't know about anyone else but there's a magical feeling I get when walking around these giants. I can't explain it...but it's definitely worth the trip. Lots of other stuff to see in the Kings Canyon/Sequoia National Parks as well so drive/hike around. I had no cell coverage so I definitely recommend paying attention to the roads you're on and keep the park map handy. There is a fee to enter the National Parks. I think it's like $30 for a 7 day pass or $80 for an annual pass good for all National Parks. I got the Annual Pass and live close by so I'm definitely going back! 👍😎👍
  • Impressive! Very impressive!! That's all I can say. This park is more than worth a visit! Take a jacket as it can be very cold. Take a camera (preferably with wide angle lens for the tall trees) as you will want to take pictures of these incredible and gigantic trees!
