Up and down Kings Canyon National Park

Post by cardinal »



Kings Canyon is one of the neat places "Close to Home" that I can get to in about 2 hours.
So let's take a short ride Up and Down Kings Canyon. This National Park is next to Sequoia National Park and is a dead end ride on Highway 180. This Time of year the river is flowing pretty good.

I obviously have a lot to learn about editing. I have no idea why "The Burn" came up first then repeated at the end. It was supposed to be the final clip in the video. Oh well, here's some stills that aren't bouncing around.

This is a good ride in mid to late spring or mid to late fall. The road may still be closed due to snow in early spring and it's HOT until mid fall.
Let's see some of the scenery around your home base...

It had been a long time since I had ridden it, too.
It really was a good ride, thanks.
