Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks are best known for their giant sequoias, soaring mountains, deep canyons, and roaring rivers. Within their borders are Mount Whitney, the highest point in the contiguous United States at 14,494 feet, and the Kings River Canyon, one of the deepest canyons in North America. However, the parks are still most revered for their super-size sequoias trees, thanks to the General Sherman Tree, the world’s largest living thing.
