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.
On the 22nd (Sun), make a trip to Olmsted Point, then hike along Panorama Trail, then take in the dramatic natural features at Sentinel Dome, and finally explore the striking landscape at Glacier Point. Here are some ideas for day two: get great views at Tunnel View and then trek along Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias.
