Layer of air pollution seen from park views..

Sequoia and Kings Canyon suffer from one of the worst air-pollution problems of any national park! Pollution — particularly ozone — from the Central Valley and the Bay Area is carried up into these mountains by warm winds. It challenges all of us everywhere to clear the air!
