Low Road

The phrase you take the low road and I'll take the high road and I'll be in Scotland before ye comes to mind when I think about this scene. The high road though was still closed in April due to snow in the higher elevations between Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, so we opted for the low road. The low road was not disappointing and turned out to be one of my favorite drives of our 3 week trip to California. With all the precipitation California received this winter the hills were amazingly green. With wildflowers interspersed on the hillsides it made for a spectacular drive. Only thing I would have wished for was more time as the drive between the parks via the low road definitely took quite a while even without stopping for photo ops. And you better know where you're going before you take this route as there is no phone service for any online maps. It really is a place to get away from it all. Photo by Steve Coyle Photography (
