"DRIVING the Yosemite National Park" Yosemite National Park by shivan

The Yosemite National Park, California, USA.
A destination not to be missed by any reason if you are travelling California.
Leaving San Francisco eastbound, you'll be there in about three hours.
A nice trip in the Californian country.
This park, my friends, like many things in the US, is HUGE. And when I say huge, I mean really HUGE.
Almost as big as Umbria or Tuscany in Italy, it offers many chances to have fun in a pleasant wilderness.
There are so many visitors every time of the years but, thanks to its incredible size, you'll never be overwhelmed by people or cars.
The most beaten road coming into the park from the west and the only road that lead to its exit towards Nevada and Mono Lake are very beautiful to drive even if far too long for me.
You'll need at least three hours to cross it.
