Yosemite Valley

Yosemite Valley is home to most of the park’s famous waterfalls and massive ancient giant sequoia strees. Here are a couple of pictures that I took from my trip back in August 2011. It was incredible to be in the middle of these magnificent giant mountains and sequoia trees. We walked around all day just mesmerized by the scenery, there is just so much to see and appreciate!

The tunnel view is one of the most famous views of Yosemite Valley. Once you exit the tunnel, you will see this amazing view. From here you can see El Capitan and Bridalveil Fall rising from Yosemite Valley, with Half Dome in the background. Majority of the tourists park their cars and take pictures, I highly recommend it!

Yosemite Lodge and Lower Yosemite Fall provide a closer view of Yosemite Falls. A short walk takes you right to the bottom, be ready to get wet!

Such a breathtaking and magnificent place! If you ever get the chance to visit California, you must visit this National Park. There is so much to do here: horseback ridding, fishing, hiking, picnicking, birdwatching, rock climbing, backpacking, water activities, tours and so much more. Be ready to take a lot of pictures πŸ™‚

  1. Hi,
    What a beautiful looking place, and the lovely waterfalls in the 4th picture as you are looking down is magnificent.
    Beautiful old trees, standing tall and proud, and that huge tree in your photo is unreal.
    Lovely photo’s that really bring the area to life, wonderful.

    • Hi! Thank you so much!! I’m glad you enjoyed my post! I read you are from Australia, you must have beautiful sceneries and landscapes! My friend was there for a semester and she absolutely loved it πŸ™‚

  2. I need to visit Yosemite one day. I was in that area less than 2 years ago, but didn’t get a chance to visit it. I went to Zion though, Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and all of that… but… Yosemite!!! I need to visit that one day! It’s a good reason to go back πŸ˜€
