There are approximately 40 different giant sequoia groves in the parks! These are areas where sequoias grow and are generally between 4,000 to 8,000 feet in elevation. Giant Forest is the most famous area, but don’t forget to explore other spots such as Grant Grove, Redwood Mountain Grove, and Muir Grove! Do you have a favorite sequoia grove to explore? Check out some new spots at:

You never know what you might find walking around the sequoia trees!  Have you gone for an evening stroll in the Giant Forest?

Nothing says summer traditions like a road trip to your National Parks! Parking is no longer permitted on Auto Log, but visitors can still walk on the downed Sequoia tree. #Archivesroadtrip #GreatOutdoors #Findyourpark

There will be no bridge this year at the crossing of the South Fork Kings River above Paradise Valley.  Please take this into consideration when planning your wilderness trip.  Those beginning the Rae Lakes Loop on Bubbs Creek may have to backtrack to safely reach Cedar Grove.

The first lodge at General Grant National Park was located at the edge of Bradley Meadow.  In the shade to the left of the lodge is Gamlin Cabin in its second location; in the 1930s, it would be returned to its original site near the Grant Tree.  This photograph was taken by Henry E. Roberts during 1914, his first summer in the park.  #waybackwednesday

Planning an #autumn #camping trip? Even on chilly nights in the mountains, it is still important to be extra-careful with your campfire! Firefighters found this improvised campfire ring near the High Sierra #Trail two weeks ago - while working to control the half-acre #wildfire that crept out after the campers departed.
.
Douse your #fire with water (not dirt), stir, and repeat as necessary to ensure that it is completely cool before you walk away. If it's too hot to touch, it's too hot to leave! #SEKIfire
