  Yosemite National Park, California
by Andraf

Yosemite National Park is located in Sierra Nevada range, about 4.5 hours drive from San Francisco and 6 hour drive from Los Angeles. The best known features of Yosemite are the waterfalls, El Capitan (largest and tallest exposed granite cliff), the unusual rock formation of Half Dome, and several groves of magnificent Giant Sequoia trees. The view from Yosemite valley takes your breath away. You get struck by the magnificent and diverse landscape of this park.

The perfect season for seeing the waterfalls is spring. The reason is that the warmer weather begins to melt the snow, and the flow of waterfalls increases. You will also see many small, unnamed waterfalls and cascades all along the Valley rim. Most of them diminish and even dissapear in the summer. There are dozens of places to climb and hike.
