BTW, from Fresno, there are three national parks within easy day-trip distance: Yosemite, Kings Canyon, and Sequoia. Among our major cities, only Seattle is similarly blessed. Otherwise, there isn't much more for Fresno to brag about.
Hey no fair!
From OC it's only 4.5 hours to Sequoia NP, 2 hours to Joshua Tree NP, 2 hours to Channel Island NP, 4.5 hours to Death Valley NP, 3 hours to Mojave National Preserve, 4 hours to Lake Meade National Recreation Area, 7 hours to Yosemite NP and 7.5 hours to Grand Canyon NP. Of course you need good traffic to make the times listed above.
