I would like to know how I can ride a train or bus to Sequoia Park and walk around for only a few hours. I will be traveling from Long Beach as I break away from business in Las Vegas, during the month of August 2011. I expect to be at Long Beach from 1:00p-2:00p, when I would like to ride to Sequoia Park and see those awesome trees that I read about as a child and take photos, but I have no clue as to how to do this. Please help me accomplish this as I've been dreaming about this for some time. Thanks, so much.

I think your best bet would be to take Amtrak from the L.A. area to either Hanford or Fresno. Amtrak puts on a bus service connecting Hanford to Visalia, from where you can hop the Sequoia Park Shuttle to get you into the park to see the highlights. BUT, and this is a big but, I wouldn't recommend trying to do all this in one day. (Bear in mind, too, that Long Beach is on the "other" side of L.A. famous urban sprawl). If you can, you should at least try to spend a night up at Sequoia or Kings Canyon as it's going to take the better part of day just getting up there. You can always camp, or spend a night at Sequioa's historic Wuksachi Lodge. Wuksachi is reviewed on here:

The National Park Service has some more info about transportation and directions to the park here:
