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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes El Capitan as well as Taft Point. Kick off your visit on the 24th (Fri): hike along Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias. On your second day here, explore the striking landscape at Taft Point, take some stellar pictures from Washburn Point, take in the dramatic natural features at Glacier Point, make a trip to Yosemite Village, then explore the striking landscape at Half Dome, and finally take in the dramatic scenery at Vernal Fall.

To find maps, photos, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Yosemite National Park trip builder website .

Seaside to Yosemite National Park is an approximately 4-hour car ride. Plan for slightly colder nights when traveling from Seaside in May since evenings lows in Yosemite National Park dip to 34°F. On the 26th (Sun), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
