  • 3. Yosemite
    Yosemite National Park is America’s 3rd national park.
    It’s known throughout the world for it’s beautiful scenery.
    It has amazing waterfalls, rock formations, alpine lakes and meadows, and some GIANT sequoias.
    It covers 1,170 square miles! That’s A LOT!
  • 4. Yosemite Valley
    Yosemite Valley is 7 miles long, and 1 mile wide, yet it has the most service there.
    There are famous sights there such as Yosemite Falls, El Capitan, Happy Isles, and of course, Mirror Lake and Tenaya Canyon.
  • 5. Yosemite Wildlife
    There are a ton of different species such as black bears, mule deer, mountain lions, yellow-bellied marmots, rattlesnakes, California bighorn sheep, bats, sheep, etc.
    The bears there will rip open the tents or break into cars to get food. You have to preserve your food in a bear-proof metal box.
    There are a lot of animals here in the wilderness.
  • 6. Sequoias
    The Grizzly Giant, a sequoia tree, at around 2,700 years old, is the oldest tree in the park, and, surprisingly, the 5th OLDEST TREE IN THE WORLD!!
    Some sequoias are so wide you can even walk through them!
    Some sequoias have nicknames such as the Clothespin Tree, Siamese Twins, and lastly, the Dead Giant.
  • 7. Glacier Point
    Glacier Point is 3,200 feet- that is a little more than ½ of a mile- straight down to Yosemite Valley!
    It is a good area to see peregrine falcons up in flight.
    In the distance ( from standing at the top) you can see Yosemite Falls!
  • 8. Yosemite Falls
    Yosemite Falls are the highest waterfalls in North America and are the 5th highest in the world!
    The full drop is actually 2,425 feet which is as tall as 13 Niagara Falls! That is a huge slope!
    During late spring and also early summer, so much water goes over that you can actually feel the ground shake! WOW!
