Massive granite mountains, towering waterfalls, groves of Giant Sequoia trees, and wilderness as far as the eye can see distinguish the landscape of Yosemite National Park.
Step out of the city life by going to Glacier Point and Yosemite, Tunnel View. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Yosemite Falls and Vernal Fall. There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Taft Point, take in the exciting artwork at Ansel Adams Gallery, don't miss a visit to Yosemite Village, and identify plant and animal life at YExplore Yosemite Adventures - Day Tours.
