Sequoia and Kings Canyon

Drove from just west of Death Valley to Sequoia in about 5 hours. Its only 100 miles as the crow flies, but the mountains don't allow you to drive that way. Approaching Sequoia from Bakersfield, we drove past orange groves where they grow oranges year round. Twenty miles past that up the mountain, we entered Sequoia National Park where they can close the roads any day of the year for snow. We setup camp and went to see the General Grant tree and also drove in to for a look at Kings Canyon. The next day, we toured a cave, did laundry and visited the General Sherman tree. We saw about 7 black bears while we were in the park. You could spend more than a day and half here, but that was enough for us to catch the highlights.
