Nature & Geology

Experience the truly unique natural landscape and geology of Kings Canyon. Time has carved great buttresses out of its swooping sandstone sides. The surfaces are punctured with rocky crags having battled the elements for more than 300 million years. Ancient marine fossils etched into the rock show the incredible environmental changes that have taken place over time.
