After whole night sound sleep with calm nature surrounding, I feel refreshed and start from the first stop Foothills to the rest part of Sequoia National Park.
First stop at Giant Forest Museum I got a lot of information.
Designated in 1890, Sequoia National Park features many trees, which are named after famous US Generals. Trees include such names as General Grant Tree and the General Sherman Tree. To see the famous General Sherman Tree located at Grant Grove, I have to stop at the closest parking area then slippery walk on the snow there.
I took couple pictures and shared some time with those huge trees, then along the Generals Highway, which climb over 5000 feet from chaparral and oak-studded foothills to the awe-inspiring sequoia groves, till the boundary of Sequoia and Kings Canyon. From the boundary point I stand, I had a glance at the majesty of Kings Canyon.
Located in the southern Sierra Nevada range, although Sequoia was just the second national park designated in US, I enjoyed lots of diversity as big trees, high peaks, and deep canyons in this National Park.
I had an unforgettable day and plan toward Yosemite National Park tomorrow.
