Yosemite National Park Button
This park had very important friends. Famed naturalist John Muir helped champion its creation, and Ansel Adams immortalized Yosemite through his black-and-white photography. Today, visitors flock to this California park to view Yosemite Falls, one of North America’s tallest at 2,425 feet. Many walk through groves of giant sequoia trees and make the difficult climb up Half Dome, a massive granite monolith that rises 4,800 feet above the floor of the spectacular Yosemite Valley.
