California - Yosemite National Park


Waterfalls, strong and powerful during the Spring and delicate or almost gone by the end of summer, the valley drained by Merced River, countless lakes created by powerful glaciers, towering granite rock formations, all of these create unique and beautiful landscape of Yosemite National Park. The park was established in 1890. It sits in the heart of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range covering almost 1,200 square miles. It is home to the Yosemite Falls, the tallest waterfall in North America. Ancient giant sequoias found in Mariposa, Tuolumne, and Merced Groves occupy a significant park area. Incredible granite rock formations, including Cathedral Rocks and Spirals, Half Dome, and El Capitan towering in the heart of the park in Yosemite Valley.
