Are you thinking of visiting a new place any time soon? Why not try the Yosemite National Park? The Yosemite is a United States National Park located in the eastern portion of the U.S. state of California. It covers an area of 747,956 acres and reaches across the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Here we tell you more about this beautiful place.
A Short History
Inhabitants of the Yosemite Valley lived there for nearly 3,000 years. The indigenous natives were known to be the Ahwahneechee and they are related to the Northern Paiute and Mono tribes. Many tribes visited the area to trade, including nearby Central Sierra Miwoks too. Fast forward to 1855: entrepreneur James Mason Hutchings, artist Thomas Ayres and two others were the first people to tour the area. Hutchings and Ayres were responsible for much of the earliest publicity about Yosemite, writing articles and special magazine issues about the Valley.
You should visit the Yosemite National Park to see its spectacular granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, and giant sequoia groves. There are also beautiful lakes, spectacular mountains, glaciers, and biological diversity. In addition, the park also offers a variety of activities that you and your family can do. This includes hiking, auto touring, picknicking, backpacking, rock climbing, birdwatching, tours, camping, fishing, water activities, and winter sports.
When to Visit?
Tourists and visitors can visit the park 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. However, the Hetch Hetchy Entrance Station is open only during daylight hours and the park also closes some roads due to snow from around November through May or June. Also, there are unique features of the park that you can appreciate in each season.
