King's Canyon National Park (Part 15) - 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 with my photos from day three. The photos for today are from the other section of King's Canyon National Park. You may or may not know this, but King's Canyon National Park is split into two sections with Sequoia National Forest in between. In this blog post, you are seeing the other part of King's Canyon National Park.

Now inside King's Canyon National Park, here is another photo of the King's River. This was shot on a bridge in the park.

This is a photo of the King's River on the other side of the bridge.

Here is a photo from Canyon Viewpoint. I'm guessing this place would look really nice if someone had a DJI and flew it up for some landscape shots. HAHA Too bad drones are banned in the national parks for now...

Here is a photo of Roaring River Falls. I recommend you visit this spot. The walk isn't that long and the scenery is nice. This shot is probably my best photo for the falls. The lighting changed in the later shots. I used an ND filter on this shot to achieve a long exposure.

Here is a photo of the waterfall with my ND filter off.  

Next I climbed down the rocks a bit to get a shot with out the giant rocks or the tree in the shot. The lighting changed so these shots didn't turn out that good.  

 Here is an ND filtered shot from that spot. 


Heading back to the parking lot from Roaring River Falls, I stopped on the trail for a shot of the mountain scenery.
