Yosemite National Park
National park in California, USA
Yosemite National Park is in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains.
It’s famed for its giant, ancient sequoia trees, and for Tunnel View, the iconic vista of towering Bridalveil Fall and the granite cliffs of El Capitan and Half Dome.
In Yosemite Village are shops, restaurants, lodging, the Yosemite Museum and the Ansel Adams Gallery, with prints of the photographer’s renowned black-and-white landscapes of the area.
John Muir was one of the foremost naturist and authors who made Yosemite famous in his
writings, and paved the way for it to become a National Park. He also founded the Sierra
Club and eventually the creation of the USFS and the NPS system. He influenced then President
Roosevelt in a camping alone with him in Yosemite.
Cathedral Peak is part of the Cathedral Range, a mountain range in the south-central portion of Yosemite National Park in eastern Mariposa and Tuolumne Counties. The range is an offshoot of the Sierra Nevada. The peak which lends its name to the range derives its name from its cathedral-shaped peak, which was formed by glacial activity: the peak remained uneroded above the glaciers in the Pleistocene.
