Tueeulala Fall

Yosemite Falls

Wildcat Falls

Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks Itinerary – April 26, 2002 to April 28, 2002

Waterfalls on Kings Canyon Highway

The Kings Canyon Highway (Hwy 180) between Grant Grove and Cedar Grove passes through some rugged canyon scenery carved out mostly by the Kings River. There are waterfalls…
