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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Parsons Memorial and Ansel Adams Gallery. Take a break from the city and head to Cathedral Beach Picnic Area and Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias. Spend the 18th (Sat) exploring nature at Bridalveil Fall. There's lots more to do: explore the striking landscape at Glacier Point, trek along Tuolumne Meadows, stroll through May Lake Trailhead, and admire the sheer force of Yosemite Falls.

Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 23rd (Thu) to allow time for the car ride back home.
