King’s Canyon Scenic Byway

Kings Canyon National Park is located east of Fresno, California. Magnificent wilderness rivers, canyons and waterfalls await the visitors on this 37 mile scenic byway leading to this National Park. Desert scenery surrounds this drive. It was warm and sunny day when we visited this park in August. A Tanka Poem
