We have been going to Sequoia/ Kings Canyon for many years. The crowds have been becoming worse every year. There is no attempt to control how many people come into the park. As a result on a recent trip we were unable to view the beautiful trees that we have seen in the past. There were cars parked in the traffic lanes in the area of Giant Forest causing cars to drive down the middle of generals Hwy. No rangers were ever seen. Even though there was little snow the parking lot for the General Sherman was not available.
