Kings Canyon National Park and Sequoia National Park
In early September we went to California for the first time. It was really great! So diverse – forest, desert, palms, city, ocean… wow! And everywhere beautiful roads that you can drive all day long. It was also really hot – but is it something surprising for California this time of year? :P
Day 1 -3 – Kings Canyon National Park & Sequoia National Park
The distance between Kings Canyon National Park and Sequoia National Park is just a couple of miles, there are actually in the very same area. They are very different but very close. Kings Canyon National Park looks like Zion canyon a bit and Sequoia National Park has sequoia trees – it’s like a forest with amazing viewpoints. Moro Rock is the best.
I saw my first bear there! It was a baby bear though ;) So cute but when I saw how he’s able to climb the tree! Fast as a cat! Running on a tree when you see a bear seems to be a bad idea now ;)
Sequoias are impressive, to take a good picture showing their size you need to have some comparison. I was wondering all the time if there is a size difference between 1000 and 2000 year old sequoia, hmmm…. difficult to imagine.
Ilike the fact that you can just drive all day long and admire…. Which we did! ;)
Here are some pictures form Kings Canyon National Park, Sequoia National Park and a couple of pictures from our way.
