Calif. Parks & Campgrounds Get Snow
After an unusually dry winter dropped little snow on Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks, storms over the past few days finally dropped enough for winter play to begin in the parks, the Visalia (Calif.) Times-Delta reported.
Friday morning (Feb. 7), about a 17-inch layer was on the ground at the Lodgpole Campground, near Wolverton, a popular sledding area in Sequoia National Park.
Dana Dierkes, a National Park Service spokeswoman, said about 12 inches of snow was on the ground at Grant Grove in Kings Canyon, and more had fallen through Friday at both parks, with snow expected to continue through today (Feb. 10).
