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

East of the Great Western Divide is the Chagoopa Plateau and Moraine Lake.  In this 1917 photograph by Walter Huber, the view west across the lake reflects the Kaweah Group.  Sierra Club Bulletin, Vol 10.  #waybackwednesday

Enjoy a relaxing moment in the largest Sequoia grove on Earth, Redwood Canyon, located in Kings Canyon National Park. Look around and you will see areas of pure Sequoia trees. What natural wonder helps you unwind? #sequoiatrees #trail #FindYourPark

It's a tough hike up the Don Cecil Trail to get this view overlooking Cedar Grove, but well worth it. And this is the time of year to hike this trail, as the temperatures are a bit cooler. What is your favorite hike in the parks?  #hiking #trails #findyourpark

After her husband's death in 1908, Viola (right) remained in the canyon, operating Kanawyers Camp until 1917.  She was reputedly capable of out fishing anyone in the mountains and probably spent as much time in the canyon as anyone of her era!  #waybackwednesday

Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks could likely have been set aside solely to protect the amazing caves found in this area (certain trees that shall remain nameless always seem get the glory). At last count, 275 caves have been discovered within park boundaries including the longest cave in California!  #cave #findyourpark
