Sequoia, Kings Canyon national parks modernize

SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (AP) ” Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks are sprucing up their road signs and entrance stations to greet growing numbers of day trippers.

Visitor numbers are up at both parks, but fewer people are camping or staying overnight to enjoy the parks’ giant sequoia trees and mountain peaks in eastern Fresno and Tulare counties.

The long-range management plan approved by the National Parks Service is geared toward making day trips more efficient.

One element of the plan already started up last summer. A new shuttle system ferries visitors between Moro Rock, Crescent Meadow, the General Sherman tree and the Giant Forest Museum.
