On Wednesday morning, after breakfast, a deer in the lodge parking area greeted me and I was off to the Grant Grove in the smaller but older section of Kings Canyon National Park (originally known as General Grant National Park). Before arriving at Grant Grove Village, I stopped at viewpoints: one with views to the north otver the Kings watershed, and the other, to the south, over the vast Redwood Mountain sequoia grove. Pictures here.

Then, it was down to the Grant Grove, home of the second largest Sequoia, for an initial view and ranger talk. Pictures.

Finally, I took a short drive in the other direction for Panorama Point, for a view of mountains behind Hume Lake. Pictures here.
