How to spend a weekend in Sequoia National Park

Sequoia and Kings Canyon are called “hiker’s parks” and rightfully so. There’s plenty of hiking trails to choose from and each of them gives something special to remember: from giant sequoias to waterfalls, quiet lakes and mountain top views. We visited the parks during mid-April, which is still considered winter season. Some of the hiking trails and spots such as Crystal Cave and Cedar Grove were closed, but on the flip side there were fewer crowds and on many occasions,…

We recently spent 2 full days exploring and hiking Yosemite Valley and fell in love with the views, the fresh air and the magical atmosphere of this place.
