King’s Canyon National Park

King's Canyon National Park

High runoff in the King’s River along CA180, the road from Grant Grove to Road’s End. I left the campground at 4am May 18 to avoid crowds, traffic-being rewarded with Venus rising still dark with a waning gibbous moon overhead. I could see the valley lights of Fresno below at McGee Point. Wildflowers and giant pine cones scattered the roadside landscape. Do not touch or remove! Cedar Grove at the end has campsites and a permit station for those hiking into the backcountry; King’s Canyon is a wilderness park.
