Home to thundering waterfalls and steep cliffs, it is a captivating landscape. It is also home to thousands of species of plant and animals. Spread across an area of nearly 750,000 acres, this enchanting mountain range, offers the most pleasing scenic sights in every season.
Every year, Yosemite attracts approximately a million tourists, explorers, scenic photographers and hikers from all over the globe. It’s quite obvious why a huge number of tourists travel many miles to experience Yosemite.
Yosemite is home to giant trees that are thousands of years old, cliffs as high as half a mile and grand waterfalls giving a reflection of some sort of a magical wonder.
Yosemite consists of hundreds of different trails that are a delight for adventurers. There is no doubt that these distinctive features when combined together, makes a wonderful landscape
for explorers, hikers, and all visitors.
Outside Yosemite, several highways join from the Eastern and Southern part while one road pierces straight through the natural park, from in between the mountains.
The Yosemite National Park contains several wonderful glacially carved canyons and storming waterfalls. The Yosemite Valley is the heart of Yosemite National Park.
Starting in the tall mountains, the Merced River dramatically flows down into the Yosemite Valley and further makes its way through acutely green meadows and coniferous forest land. A walk or a drive through the Glacier Point road offers a stunning panorama view of the valley, a thousand feet below.
Beyond Yosemite Valley, coniferous forest land covers a large landscape, as far as eye can see. This forest land is home to diverse species of plants and trees, such as the Sugar Pine, Red Fur, Ponderosa, and few towering gigantic species of Sequoias.
In the southwestern region of the Park, the Mariposa Grove is situated. It is a trail, hosting some of the largest trees on the planet. Located right in between Tuolumne Meadows and the Yosemite Valley, the Tenaya Lake is an amazing spot to spend your summer relaxing on the lakeside.
Offering a captivating sight of clean blue water, bounded by rocky mountains, the Tenaya Lake is undoubtedly a place you would not want to miss. Take a long hike through the rocky forestland, or a trip through the trails on a mountain bike, the Yosemite National Park provides an equal amount of fascination with an unforgettable forest experience.
During the months of April and March, the Badger Pass Ski spot in the park remains open for skiers. In the month of May, waterfalls get filled up and roar while falling off the cliffs.
However, during these months, the Glacier Point remains closed. The best time to visit happens to be June and July. That’s the time of the year when there are fewer storms and all areas of the park are accessible to travelers.
I believe everyone should try to visit Yosemite National Park. It is beautiful and majestic. A natural wonder that will not disappoint. It is truly a Bucket List Adventure.
