Our family cannot get enough of Yosemite. I first went there as a child with my family, we took our children there every summer and now we go with our grandchildren. We stay in the Housekeeping tents and that's just right for our "camping experience". The units have a cement floor, thick canvas tent and even an electrical plug.beds consist... More

We visited Yosemite Valley in mid-June.There were lots of visitors, but the vistas are so wonderful that it is hard to complain about the large number of people. I highly recommend stopping at El Capitan meadows on the way out of the park directly below El Capitan. The view of El Cap from that spot is pretty amazing! If you... More

Another place to add to your places to visit before you die! Absolutely beautiful and the hikes are so peaceful. Plan on staying at least 3 days to be able to take it all in.

It is our bucket list to see a different National Park each summer, and this year we hit the mother lode with Yosemite! What a beautiful, gigantic wonderland. From the valley vantage points, one can see the famous Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, historic lodges, information centers, educational movies and workshops, museums, and more. There is a free shuttle to cart... More

Yosemite is truly a valley nestled between amazing rock structures. If you are interested in photography don't forget to go out in the early morning and when the sun is setting. The Alpenglow of Half Dome is not to be missed.

The place speaks for itself obviously, but this is one of the most wonderful places in America. Stunning views, plenty of easy and difficult walks, easy signposting and so on!

The valley is just stunning. The surrounding is so pretty but you get a much bette perspective if you hike up a trail and take a look from above. I did the 4 mile trail and it was breath taking to look down into the valley

We biked to Mirror Lake and hiked around a bit. We got in the water. Then, we hopped on our bikes to Yosemite Falls and walked around there a bit, too. It was easy to hit all the primes sites this way.
