While visiting the San Francisco area, we made a point of adding Yosemite National Park to our itinerary. We thoroughly enjoyed this magnificent national park and were amazed by its beauty. The striking rock formations and deep fertile valleys were all created by massive glaciers enveloping the area thousands and thousands of years ago.
Although we never caught a glimpse of a bear or two as we had hoped, we did see a few of God's other creatures. Yosemite offers displays of nature at its finest...and most beautiful!
Here are some informative statistics about this incredible national park:
*Yosemite Park is over 1100 square miles of incredible beauty! Established in 1890 as a national park, Yosemite sits in Sierra Nevada--95% of which is still regarded as wilderness.
*Countless lakes, ponds and streams, crystal waterfalls and unique granite cliffs traversed by 350 miles of roads are contained within its 750,000 acres.
*There are 85 species of mammals, 150 species of birds, 1,000 species of flowering plants and 37 types of trees. Visitors can wander 800 miles of hiking trails in this national park, which is nearly the size of Rhode Island.
Giant Sequoias, El Capitan, Half Dome and other towering formations, all exude a splendor that can only be experienced to the fullest first hand...3.5 million visitors do each year!
