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.
Get outdoors at Parsons Memorial and Nature Center at Happy Isles. Step off the beaten path and head to Cathedral Beach Picnic Area and Gaylor Lake. Go for a jaunt from Yosemite National Park to Hathaway Pines to see Stanislaus National Forest about 38 minutes away. Spend the 12th (Wed) on the water with a fishing tour. On the 15th (Sat), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Yosemite Ski and Snowboard Area. There's much more to do: hike along Yosemite Valley Loop Trail, tour the pleasant surroundings at Lower Yosemite Fall Trail, explore the world behind art at Yosemite Museum Gallery, and make a trip to Pothole Dome.

In February in Yosemite National Park, expect temperatures between 10°C during the day and -9°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
