National Park Tour Plan Part 2: California

Part 1 plans for our trip can be found here.
California is a huge state and I can't really wrap my head around the idea that we will be walking through it next year, the entire length of it.  We are skipping some of the areas we will hit on the Pacific Crest Trail because we will be walking through them in the future. Luckily there is plenty of National Park fun to go around.

Sequoia


Kings Canyon

Sequoia and Kings Canyon are managed together as one awesome super park. The plan is to head up to the Mineral King area for a 6 day loop backpacking trek that involves some mountains and alpine lakes. Before that I want to visit General Sherman and check out the giant redwoods in the area. After our visit here we will head to the in-laws to visit for a bit. Yay indoor showers and mattresses!

Redwoods

Northern California also has some giant Redwoods and beautiful coastal trails. We hope to spend a day or two on the coast and about two days hitting up the Tall Trees area to wander through the forest for a day or two.

The great thing about this trip is that we have a general timeline and plan but there is nothing keeping us from staying longer or leaving earlier if we want. Pretty freeing and exciting.
