The California Most Don't Know
The view from Kings Canyon Scenic Highway is amazing.
I live in Southern California and wasn't familiar with this region. Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park is in the core of a multitude of wilderness areas and at least three national forests. This view is from an area just north of the westernmost portion of the National Park, located within Giant Sequoia National Monument and Sequoia National Forest, overlooking the Monarch Wilderness and the Monarch Divide, which crosses back into the National Park.
On this particular day we only had a couple of hours to explore, so we drove to the end of the byway, reached the permit station and turned around. We will definitely come back to this region once the weather cools a bit.
For those who think California is just LA, San Francisco and beaches, take a moment and research Yosemite, Kings Canyon and see that there is more here than you imagined there to be...including the highest peak in the continental U.S. (Mt Whitney), located on the eastern edge of the Sequoia section of this dual National Park.

Glad I decided to stick it out this night. At the beginning it was so cloudy that the stars were practically invisible even through a long exposure. But it cleared in a couple spots. Still think this image would have a lot more potential since Andromeda is almost aligned with the valley but the clouds are too thick to easily detect our neighboring galaxy.

Transport yourself into such realm, awestruck & teary-eyed u'd be, like I was~
Welp... we’ve upgraded to a 1976 Airstream International Overlander! We still can’t believe we found such a great camper! We are super excited to get it cleaned up and on the road.
This is probably my favorite photo from their session 😍
For me, black and white photos represent a memory, something that happened forever ago, even though I hung out with these two last week 😂😂. And I’m dreaming about visiting this same spot, and I think it’s coming true this weekend..:so stay tuned!!!
Now that I’ve hinted at my weekend plans, you should hint at yours and I’ll try to guess! Now drop those hints below 👇🏻👇🏻
If I had to choose between the mountains or the beach, I wouldn't be able to decide..

Looking back at the photos we took at Glacier NP and keep finding new favorites! This bright mossy slope looks so beautiful against Grinnell Lake 💎 #naturalmontana
