  1. Default Sequoia and Kings Canyon seen with a Photographers eye ;-)

    Hello everyone

    In 7 weeks i will be in the area of Sequoia and Kings Canyon, but is it worth the drive and time, or should i just go directly to Yosemite. I have searched the net, but havenīt found much useful information about the parks and its photo spots... but hopefully i have just been unlucky and someone can guide me to the right info ;-)

    Looking forward to your inputs

    Default Yes it's worth it, if you have the time.

    Hello and welcome back to RTA !

    There is plenty of info available on the parks and the NPS site is very informative. Only you can decide if it's worth it or not, depending on other factors, like time. Like all National parks I know of, there are many amazing photo opportunities at almost every turn, and these two combined parks, with their mountain drives, amazing scenery are no exception, with the largest living things on earth, the Sequoia tree, as an added bonus. There is a grove of giant Sequoia trees in Yosemite, at Mariposa grove near to the south entrance, that you could visit if time is tight. Without seeing the 'bigger picture' there is no way to give you meaningful advice to help you come to a conclusion.

    My favourite time to visit Kings Canyon is June when the snow is melting and the river is a gush with flowing water. To see the fast flowing river in the canyon setting is a scene to see. And the glorious spring flowers and wild life add to the experience.

    You make your choices.

    To me that would be an invitation to fill the void, find the photo spots and create my own. Future researchers (travellers) may well thank you for it.
