Yosemite - The Complete Guide has everything you need to know about the grand Yosemite Park. Nestled deep in the heart of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Yosemite is one of America's finest national parks. Its granite landscape, polished by Ice Age glaciers, is bursting with superlatives: the highest waterfall in North America (Yosemite Falls), the most famous vertical rock face in the world (El Capitan), and the largest living organisms of all time (giant sequoias). But no statistic can ever capture its staggering beauty. Yosemite's scenery has inspired some of the world's finest artists, and it continues to humble millions of visitors each year. Yosemite Valley is the crown jewel of the park. Just seven miles long by one mile wide, it represents less than 1% of the park's 1,200 square miles. But concentrated among its forests, meadows, and 3,000-foot cliffs are some of the word's most remarkable physical landmarks. Half Dome, El Capitan, Bridalveil Fall-all can be seen in a single, sweeping panorama. Because Yosemite Valley is the most popular part of the park, it's home to the vast majority of Yosemite's lodges, campgrounds, and visitor facilities.Wildlife & Waterfalls.Rafting, rock climbing, winter sports, day & overniight hikes and much more.ISBN - 9780982517222.Author - James Kaiser.Publisher - James Kaiser.Pages - 303.Binding - Paper.Year - 2011 2nd edition..
