Fiery red liquid tumbling down El Capitan - a breath taking spectacle! You can see this optical illusion only for 2 weeks in February. The setting sun is reflected by the granite behind the waterfall…

Yosemite is one of the largest and least fragmented habitat blocks in the Sierra Nevada. In 1855, entrepreneur James Mason Hutchings & artist Thomas Ayres were the first to tour the area.

In the summer, make the effort to start your hike early! You miss the crowds & high temps later on! You'll be so glad when you're coming down and ppl are just starting! Bring more H2O than you need!!!

The hike on Four Mile Trail from Yosemite Valley to the top of Glacier Point takes about 3-4 hours each way. If you’re looking for something a bit tougher, the Panorama Trail is about twice as long.

Exploring this natural wonder in one day is tough! Get some exercise hiking, biking or through a guided tour and teach your kids to nurture nature by volunteering as a family.

If you attempt to hike the Mist Trail up to Half-Dome, invest in some of the ski pole walking sticks. I made it to the top, but about half way there I was wishing I had some of those ski poles.

Climb Half Dome while you're here. It's a beautiful day trip. Be sure to check the weather first. Don't want to be caught in a rainstorm or cold weather.
