We got some snow! Grant Grove conducted its first Ranger-Led Snowshoe Walk today. What a great time, in beautiful scenery!

During the next couple weeks, we will be conducting Grant Tree Walks in Grant Grove on the weekends, either at 10 AM or 2 PM.

We need at least six inches of snow on the ground for snowshoeing. Most of the snow has melted, but if we get more, the Grant Tree Walks will...

The Giant Forest was blanketed in dense fog yesterday afternoon, creating a mysterious environment for exploration! What is your favorite weather for a walk in the woods?
The Generals Highway is a mountain road traveling through the mid-Sierra connecting Grant Grove to the Giant Forest and foothills of Sequoia National Park. Occasionally after a snowfall we have to close this road. As you can tell from the picture, it's quite the adventure for our road crew to clear. They still use this kind of machinery today!

As the sun rises over the parks today, the skies are clear. However, that is expected to change by the end of the day with the next #storm coming in.

Here are some current images of Mineral King, from Giant Forest, and from the Buck Rock Lookout. Let's see what changes occur!

As a friendly reminder, chains or cables may be required to visit the #BigTrees with this storm.
Photographed this week, this #BabySequoia is a sprout from the 2015 Rough Fire.

As we approach the new year, we see that life has an opportunity to remind us how fragile it is. Today, when you #OptOutside, take a moment to enjoy the little things in life.

Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks are places to relax and recharge. Their quiet corners invite you to sit by the river and simply listen to birds singing in the trees, water rushing over rocks, and leaves rustling in the wind. Take time to enjoy these simple pleasures during this holiday weekend. And Happy Thanksgiving to all! (Photo credit: Siobhan Kenney, Photo taken near Zumwalt Meadow)

QUESTION: How old are the Sierra Nevada Mountains?

No matter their age, the peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains are breathtaking at any moment of the day. But if you are one of our curious visitors that want to know what science suggests about the age of these mountains see the comments section below.
We're pleased to announce the reopening of the Muir Grove Trail, as well as the trail between Lost Grove and Dorst Campground! Both trails have been closed since October 10th due to the Dorst Prescribed Burn, close to the northern boundary of Sequoia National Park.

Even though the trails are open, there may still be hazards inside the burn unit! Please stay on the trail and be extra aware of...

Check out this great video from The Nature Corps! They brought a group of military veterans to the parks as part of a marriage retreat. Together, with their spouses, they planted #GiantSequoia trees to symbolize their relationship growing into the next chapter of their lives.
"This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.” - John Muir

The sunny summer days have given way to fall and winter vistas, but don't despair! Your...

This past weekend nearly 30 visitors attended a color guard and drum circle event at the #GeneralGrant Tree in Kings Canyon to celebrate Veteran's Day and Native American Heritage Month.
Visiting #nationalparks, you can escape the light from the city for the lights provided by nature. Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks have some of the best dark skies for viewing rare events like yesterday's #supermoon. #FindYourPark

Highway 180 to Cedar Grove closed for the winter today.
The closed gate is just beyond the Hume Lake Cutoff.

Visitors often ask why the road is closed since it hasn't snowed yet.
During times of drastic temperature swings in spring and fall, the rocks along the highway become unstable, resulting in rockfall on the road. The highway is maintained by the State of California and CalTrans...
