Off the Beaten Path: Sequoia and King's Canyon

April 18, 2013  •  Leave a Comment
In the land of tall trees, waterfalls, and dark caverns, I'm reminded of just how awesome our world is. An urbanite at heart, I'm still drawn to the dark cool forest and the way the wind sounds under a canopy of trees.

Wandering the forests and hiking the trails of our state and national park systems can be a mental palate cleanser. All the daily waves of chatter and inanity that infuse life are stopped at the entry gates if you let them. Give it a try.

King's Canyon and Sequoia National Parks are located in central California with entrances nearest the cities of Visalia (off highway 198) and Fresno (off highway 180). You can find visitors' information and road closures on the National Park Services site.
