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.

Here are some ideas for day two: don't miss a visit to Olmsted Point, then stroll through Tuolumne Meadows, and then indulge your thirst for a good beer at June Lake Brewing.
