Giant Sequoia National Monument, California: Junction View
The Kings Canyon Scenic Byway is one of the best-kept secrets in the country. The drive is one of the best around, skirting the top of the largest canyon in North America and then plunging slowly down to the edge of the Kings River. The road hugs the river's edge for several more miles. Thus you can look down at the canyon at one point, and up a bit later. It's all good, though.
Here's the view from Junction Point, one of the first good views of the area when coming in from the west. You can see the two-lane road up ahead.
