Yosemite National Park

Perhaps the jewel in the crown of America’s vast national parks, Yosemite offers an awe-inspiring look at some of the country’s most spectacular natural features. From the imposing sequoia trees at Mariposa Grove to the hidden waterfalls which suddenly appear behind the granite rocks and verdant flora on rewarding hikes, Yosemite deserves its status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With the Half Dome and El Capitan rock formations, the refreshing Yosemite Falls and the glacial Hetch Hetchy to explore in this vast area, Yosemite is the perfect destination for the outdoors adventurer.
