Yosemite National Park was a must see for us on our West Coast trip around the country. With tall pine trees, granite monoliths and rippling meadow grasses it is one of the wonders of the natural world. Driving to the park and viewing the scenery was just aw inspiring.
You need a few days in the park to enjoy the streams, rock formations, waterfalls and the wild life that abounds there. There are over 800 hiking trails for both the novice and then for the more advance individuals. You can take the easy half mile stroll on the valley floor or around the giant sequoia trees. The more advanced hikers is the top of the Half Dome trail a 17 mile round trip hike.

When visiting the park we went to the Majestic Mountain Lodge and had lunch in the large dinning room with an excellent view outside. There is also outside dinning for you scenic pleasure.
There are many places to eat and sleep within the park you can see the list at the official park site (http://www.travelyosemite.com/)
