Sequoia National Park
1. SEQUOIA AND KINGS CANYONSequoia is known primarily for one thing…. its mighty Sequoia trees. Although these majestic giants aren’t the tallest in the world, they are definitely the largest by volume and people flock from all over to stand at the foot of the park’s pride and joy; the General Sherman Tree. Standing at over 83 meters tall and with a base circumference of over 31 meters, standing next to this gigantic wooden column makes you feel dwarfed by the power of Mother Nature.Along with the second biggest tree in the world (the General Grant) and hundreds of their smaller (but still colossal) companions dotted among the Redwoods, Sequoia and Kings Canyon provide some amazing neck wrenching hikes through what must be one of the most formidable forested areas in the world.That being said, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks aren’t all about the trees. Just on the drive from camp to a trail head, you can expect to stop a dozen times to take in the views of the surrounding landscape. Some roads are at such altitude that from these heights the gargantuan trees below look like match sticks and these vistas are worth a visit in themselves.
Weekend Getaways from Sequoia National Park

This year February, i was in #LasAngles and got one day free for some sightseeing. I decided to go to Universal Studio. Being a non working day, It was a lot of crowd there. I started with the Simpson ride first and quite enjoy it. Then i was waiting in the queue for the tour bus of Universal Studio, where they take everyone to show around the sets of Hollywood and a lot more.There was one Korean girl standing next to me in the line and she requested if her friends can join in the line. I was ok with it so i said sure not a problem. She called her other Korean friend who joined her. After few minutes they asked if other friends join too, so i just smiled. I have been to Korea many times so i knew some basic Korean words. I just greeted them saying "anyohaseyo"(which means hello in Korean). They were more excited than surprised and then we started interacting throughout the ride. I came to know that two of them(Jeni and Kate) were settled in NYC since birth and visited other friend(Mini) who was settled in LA.As i was alone so they invited me to join them for the rest of the day. Mini was living in LA from a long time and had been to the theme park many times, so was the best local person who could help me :)
