Located in the heart of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in northern California, Yosemite National Park is one of the most visited parks in the national park system. Famous for its towering glacier-sculpted granite formations (including the iconic Half Dome and El Capitan), majestic waterfalls, and beautiful forests and meadows, Yosemite inspires hikers, backpackers, climbers, photographers, and casual tourists alike. While most tourists flock to the crowded Yosemite Valley and get caught in city-like gridlock conditions, it actually is still possible to hit the trail and enjoy some wilderness scenery if you're willing to work hard enough...
