Though the weather was cool, and cloudy, we still very much enjoyed this days adventure. We found that the drive took us up to about 7,000 feet and because of the storm system moving through, we spent a fair amount of time in the clouds. None the less, we loved everything that we saw.
We had a chance to check out the Gamlin Cabin which has served many purposes over its many years of existence.
There was also this tree that fell over in the 1800's that served as shelter for early settlers and also the cavalry at one point that use to patrol the park before the national parks service.
We also got to see the General Grant Tree. The hike to this tree was much more leisurely than the one to see the General Sherman tree that we saw the day before.
The drive up to Kings Canyon took us through some rather windy back roads. In the summer time, when coming from Three rivers, you can drive through Sequoia National park to Kings Canyon but it takes a long time. Basically, there is no easy way to get to Kings Canyon from Three Rivers, but for the most comfortable drive, that also allows you to set in provisions, taking the long way through Visalia can work out well.
Safe Travels All!
