I'm sorry that I didn't see this thread sooner. I have spent many MONTHS over the last 12 years or so in Sequoia and Kings Canyon NP. I know most of the backcountry Rangers as well as a couple of the Front-Country Rangers. If you decide to go back there, I can definattely point you towards some little- or seldom-seen places. Most of whcih are surprisingly accessible! I look forward to seeing your photos! SEKI is my favorite National Park.
