Yosemite National Park has at its heart the magnificent and intimate Yosemite Valley--where huge granite domes billow upward and tall waterfalls seem to spring from the sky.
In the vast parkland, soaring white capped peaks and wilderness forests and meadowlands speak of the primeval.
Yosemite is a panorama of natural beauty that "cleanses and warms like fire" yet calms and soothes like balm.
Yosemite National Park, in central California, traces its origins to 1864. Formally established in 1890 and 1906, it preserves Yosemite Valley, giant sequoias, forests, and High Sierra wilderness.
