2005 Sequoia/Kings Canyon Trip

Day 1 of 5

Wednesday, August 24th
Drive to Grant Grove

We got a late start, but leaving at 2pm on a Wednesday from the Bay Area isn't such a bad thing. Work has progressed on turning Highway 180 into a freeway in Fresno, and that saved us a few minutes. It used to be that you had to slog through Fresno street traffic for miles, but it is much better now (with more freeway still to come). In any case, even with two short stops, we arrived in Grant Grove around 6:30pm, plenty of time to choose a nice camp site. We settled on a site at Azalea campground. We had plenty to choose from, as the campground was only about half full.

Although this would be our 6th visit to Sequoia/Kings Canyon, this would be our first since December 2001. It's obviously one of my favorite places. However, since I've done a lot of the more well-known hikes, I decided to try a few more obscure ones this time.
