Kings Canyon is in the Sierras.
This tree is located in Big Basin Redwoods State Park. Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Park is about 200 miles to the southwest.
Nice photo, but it is either misplaced or mislabeled. You have placed it in Big Basin State Park (in the Santa Cruz Mountains) but have labeled it as being in Kings Canyon/Sequoia National Park, which is in the Sierra hundreds of miles away. From the look of the tree, it looks to belong in Big Basin SP, but the caption is misleading. Thought you might like to know.
Yes, this a great picture. But it's a Coast Redwood and belongs where you put it in Big Basin, not in Kings Canyon, which has only Sierra Redwoods. So it would be less confusing if you changed the title. See my pic in Ewell, Surrey, England for a comparison of the two types of Redwoods growing in chalky soil at low altitude.
The Father of the Forest Tree is in Big Basin, so the location is correct. But, the label of the picture, Sequoia Nat'l Park, is a good 6 hour drive to the southeast.
Thanks for the correction Conan Guard!
