"Glaciers, Granite, and Giganteum-Sequoiadendron" Yosemite National Park
How fortunate we are to have a place a spectacular as Yosemite almost in our own back yards!! So much awaits visitors to Yosemite that planning ahead is a good idea! First-timers to the park might want to get an overview and plan for return trips to focus on various elements: geology, water (waterfalls and fivers) wildlife, Indians, vegetation, etc. Park museums and visitor centers are brimming with information—don’t forget to stop and see what they offer. When many of us think of Yosemite, we are really thinking of the “valley”, but the park is made of much more than just the valley! Don’t forget to include Tioga Pass, Glacier Point and Wawona on your Yosemite “bucket list”!!
On the Go Depending on the season, be sure to grab sunscreen and insect repellant before you leave. Yosemite has many services for tourists, including groceries and restaurant/takeout food. Fun idea: have a family license plate scavenger hunt. Where are all those cars from??? See which family member can find cars from the most states outside of California--or even outside of the United States!!! Don’t forget your bingo cards.
