A Land of Giants
These two parks lie side by side in the southern Sierra Nevada, east of the San Joaquin Valley. Their dramatic landscape testifies to nature's size, beauty, and diversity -- huge mountains, rugged foothills, deep canyons, vast caverns, and the world's largest trees, the giant Sequoias.
