Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park has been high on my bucket list, since first seeing the haunting black and white photography series by Ansel Adams taken in 1958.

Yosemite is a jewel of the United States National Parks in the central eastern portion of California. The park covers an area of 761,268 acres (3,080.74 km2)and reaches across the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain chain.  Over 3.7 million people visit the park each year, most spend their time in the seven square miles (18 km2) of Yosemite Valley.  Designated a World Heritage Site in 1984, Yosemite is internationally recognized for its spectacular granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, Giant Sequoia groves, and biological diversity.  Park tourism Site
