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. Moderately priced accommodations can be found in the neighboring towns around Yosemite.

    The main valley, known as Yosemite Valley is one of the most beautiful canyons in all California. This 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. Plenty to see & do in this park, but don't expect to be alone on these trails.
