        Rae Lake: Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park | Ken Burns: The National Parks

        First John Muir, then Stephen Mather, called for a national park in the Kings Canyon region of California's Sierra Nevada. It wasn't until 1940 that Interior Secretary Harold Ickes was able to get it done. Ickes wanted a roadless wilderness park, and originally sought to have it named in Muir's honor.
