Kings Canyon National Park

The next stop of my trip in California was Kings Canyon National Park. I didn’t spend a lot of time there, it was the second part of the second day I visited Sequoia NP, as the two National Parks are very close to each other. And you can see almost all the sights of the park without long hikes, they are pretty close to the single road that runs through the park. Even if I spent there a bit more than half a day, that time was very rewarding, with a lot of impressive views and an amazing sunset when I was already leaving the canyon.

The park’s namesake, Kings Canyon, is a huge rugged-glacier valley more than 1600m deep, surrounded by peaks of more than 4300m of height. There are also sequoia groves with some of the largest trees on Earth, waterfalls and high mountain meadows.

Here are some photos I took in Kings Canyon. I hope you like them!

    1. Thanks a million, Anne!!! I didn’t know Kings Canyon is your favourite NP!!! But I completely understand!! We were almost completely alone there, no crowds, no tourists, no traffic…. just the nature and us! It was so amazing to enjoy the nature in such an intimate way. And the sunset we saw on our way back is one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen!!! I won’t forget this place easily 😊
