The superstars of Sequoia & Kings Canyon parks might be the trees but whatever you do, make sure you take time to explore Kings Canyon. California 180 (aka Kings Canyon Scenic Byway) is an amazing drive and my wife & I found it far more spectacular than Yosemite's highly lauded Tioga Road. There are some great turnouts along the way as well as the opportunity to buy gas from the oldest dual gravity pumps in the US at Kings Canyon Lodge and explore the caves at Boyden Cavern. The Kings River runs along the road for much of the length with its wild & rugged beauty constantly drawing your attention away from the ever curving road. Roaring River Falls & Zumwalt Meadow offers some nice stops along the way to take in a little more of the canyon's beauty. There's even more to see & do in the canyon but all you really need to know is that it's definitely worth the trip!
