National Parks in the Sierra Nevada
Sierra Nevada National Parks include Sequoia, Kings Canyon, Yosemite, Manzanar and Devils Postpile. On March 1, 1872, President Ulysses Grant signed into existence the world's first national park. Since then, hundreds more have been established. These parks are awe inspiring natural wonders and offer endless activities. California has several of these National Parks and Monuments. Visit world-renowned sites like Yosemite Falls, Half Dome and Glacier Point in Yosemite. See Giant Sequoia trees and explore underground caverns in Sequoia-Kings Canyon. Visit the site of a former WWII Japanese internment camp at Manzanar National Historic Site. Stand below a wall of hexagonal lava columns at Devils Postpile National Monument.
