The Canyons – King’s Canyon

Few people travel to California without making the pilgrimage to Yosemite. Yet even fewer people make the time to visit it’s breathtakingly beautiful sister, King’s Canyon. Both these landscapes are pristine U-shaped valleys, carved out by ice-age glaciers and covered in towering pine forests. We approached King’s Canyon one afternoon, driving down the magnificent Highway 180 – a winding mountain round that opens up to a mind-blowing vista around almost every corner.

The Kings River courses along the bottom of the valley, tumbling through rapids and over waterfalls. At the end of the road is nothing but wildnerness, a landscape that is only accessible to those with a sense of adventure and exploration. For those who don’t have time to trek into the canyon for days, short scenic walks will take you around meadows, past lakes and through forests, giving you a glimpse into this uncrowded and unspoilt corner of California. Excuse the quality of the photos below – they’re taken on my phone as my camera ran out of battery!
