After spending a star studded night in Death Valley it was time to continue on to Sequoia national park! This park contains the biggest tree in the world and visiting in February was like entering a winter wonderland.
Unfortunately these beautiful snowy views have their downside-most of the roads were closed and their was no way to enter the connected park, Kings Canyon national park. It’s a legal requirement to carry snow chains in the park during the winter months! Now, on the map Sequoia seems right next door to Death Valley…. But this is deceiving.
In reality there are no roads that connect Death Valley’s west side with Sequoia’s East side. So the seemingly short trip takes about 5 hours . But don’t let that deter you! It’s a beautiful drive and a beautiful destination.
