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.
Kick off your visit on the 24th (Sun): admire the masterpieces at Yosemite Museum Gallery, then appreciate the extensive heritage of Big Trees Lodge, National Historic Landmark, and then take in the dramatic natural features at El Capitan. Here are some ideas for day two: identify plant and animal life at Nature Center at Happy Isles, don't miss a visit to Olmsted Point, and then hike along May Lake Trailhead.
