Sequoia National Park is most famous for it’s giant trees but did you know that there is so much more to the park than the trees? I think even if this park didn’t have giant trees it would still be worthy of being a National Park.

This park has multiple beautiful rivers, pretty mountains, stunning meadows and caves!

The only cave that you’re allowed to tour in the park is Crystal Cave and it costs $15 to go in. However, there are multiple other caves that are kept on the down low because they don’t want people going through them which I understand. Matt and I did our best to search for one of the secret caves in the park but never found one. Maybe one day! We did find White Chief mine though! It is a hole in the side of the mountain that’s made completely of marble. The miners in the early 1900’s were looking for silver but didn’t find any.
