Yosemite National Park ©
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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Tioga Rd and Sentinel Dome. Take a break from the city and head to Cathedral Beach Picnic Area and Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias. Step out of Yosemite National Park with an excursion to Mono Lake Tufa State Natural Reserve in Lee Vining--about 1 hour away. Spend the 24th (Fri) exploring nature at Bridalveil Fall. Spend the 26th (Sun) exploring nature at Elizabeth Lake, Yosemite National Park. And it doesn't end there: explore the striking landscape at Glacier Point, see human ingenuity at work at Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, admire the sheer force of Yosemite Falls, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Nevada Falls Loop.

To find photos, traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Yosemite National Park trip maker .

In May, daytime highs in Yosemite National Park are 65°F, while nighttime lows are 34°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
