Crescent Meadow & Moro Rock (Part 5) - Sequoia & King's Canyon NP (2014)

I recently took a trip to Sequoia and King's Canyon National Park (the two parks are connected). I had a great time photographing many scenery and enjoying the beauty of nature both inside the two national parks and out in Sequoia National Forest. Through this chain of blog posts, I will be showing photos of natural scenery, mountains, meadows, forests, wildlife, and the wonderful trees of the parks. I will also be giving some travel advice into the park as I know some of you viewers are probably looking at this to try to plan a trip to the parks. In these parks, is one of the world's largest species of trees, the Giant Sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum). I will also have a few photos of the world's most massive tree the General Sherman Tree in blog posts to come. I hope you enjoy this chain of blog posts!

Today I continue my photos from day two. These photos were shot at Crescent Meadow and Moro Rock, two attractions along Crescent Meadow Road.

Here is a shot of Crescent Meadow. I shot the next few photos from the same spot, as it is illegal and bad for the plants to walk on the meadow, I saw a fallen tree and stood on that as I took the shot. Please when visiting the great outdoors (not just for this park) to not step on the fragile plants and organisms that thrive in the meadows as it destroys their habitat. Only walk on designated trails or if possible, step onto a fall tree, or just keep off the meadows.

 Here is a panorama of Crescent Meadow. If you want to see a high resolution view, use those gallery links I have at the top of the blog post. In the middle is the fallen tree I was standing on to take these shots. 


Next up is Moro Rock. The climb up Moro Rock was somewhat a bit scary for me as I'm terrified of heights. The view was amazing though!
