The eponymous trees—twisted and prickly, with clumps of spiny leaves—are straight out of a Dr. Seuss book. · Visitors to Lassen Volcanic will find spectacular geologic wonders plus more than 150 miles of hiking trails, countless mountain lakes and streams, and flowering meadows. · Ancient evergreens tower over visitors among the jagged mountain slopes of Sequoia and Kings Canyon, which cover more than 850,000 acres combined. · Shimmering waterfalls and the soaring granite monoliths of Half Dome and El Capitan are some of the classic images you’ll see in Yosemite’s 748,000 acres.
