From Sequoia, we took the road into King's Canyon.
Views like this were not uncommon.
The mountains surrounded us on all sides, and at times seemed to block the very road on which we were driving.
The bottom of the canyon was beautiful. We hiked the Zumwalt Meadow trail, a mostly-flat easy-going, 1.5 mile walk along the King's River. Although it was quite the drive there, the walk itself was very family friendly and was full of lovely views and vistas. The view from the bridge was one of our favorites:
If you look closely, you will see our hearty crew!
The hike was refreshing and relaxing in a number of ways.
Ascending King's Canyon, we turned toward Yosemite.
We were onto the next stage of our adventure!
