drive-through redwood tree in the Mariposa Grove, Yosemite National Park, California. Ok, so this same picture hung in my grandparents lake house for about 20 years! I can never see this pic without feeling like an 8 year old. Warm memories!
Kings Canyon National Park: Sentinel Campground Sentinel is one of four campgrounds in the Cedar Grove area of the park. Actually, any of the four would be on our favorites list because we consider Cedar Grove such a great place to camp, but Sentinel is closest to Cedar Grove Lodge with a small market and dining area. The campground sits along the Middle Fork of the Kings River that can really roar in the spring and early summer.
Best dining in the park? The Peaks at Wuksachi Lodge has sophisticated fare, but also a family-friendly atmosphere - details in http://www.familytravel411.com/sequoia-national-park-with-kids/#.U8G1wHJdVyI
