Granite cliffs and ancient sequoias make for an awe-inspiring experience.

Immerse yourself in awe-inspiring nature in Yosemite National Park, in California. With massive glacier-carved granite cliffs, plunging waterfalls where rainbows reflect in the powerful spray and giant sequoia trees more than 3,000 years old, you’ll find wonders of epic proportions everywhere you look. Adventure in Yosemite can be as daring as you’re up for. Adrenaline seekers can raft down level-four rapids and hike more than 4,800 feet of elevation up the stomach-dropping Half Dome, while nature lovers of all abilities can enjoy paved hiking trails and scenic drives with panoramic lookout points.
