town.yosemite valley

Yosemite Park: The most visited National Park - need we say more? This small wondrous granite walled valley has been converted into main stream concessionaire, equipped with pizza shops & galleries. Maybe the big floods are natures way of keeping people out. Either way, you best reserve a campground or lodge (a year in advance) if you plan an overnight in the Yosemite Valley, any time of the year. Accommodations can also be found in the neighboring towns around the National Park. Historic Gold Country on the west side and the dramatic high desert w/ Mono Lake on the east. Tioga Pass closes annually for snow, more than half the year.

description:
The main valley, known as Yosemite Valley is one of the most beautiful scenic canyons in all California - or perhaps the world. This mountain meadow location sits at an elevation of approximately 4000 feet above sea level & gets a fair amount of snow, while the granite ridges rise to heights of 8000 feet. The backcountry mountain peaks reach over 13,000 feet in elevation and are inaccessible about half the year, due to snow. Plenty to see & do in this park, but don't expect to be alone on these trails.
