If you love nature and enjoy a little adventure in your life then you must add Yosemite national park to the top of your must-see list. The national park is located on the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and crosses 3 California counties. It spans an area of 761,268 acres (1,200 square miles) of mountains, steep granite cliffs, valleys, rivers, waterfall and lakes. It is home to groves of Giant Sequoia trees and many species of plants and animals. It is also home for the American black bear and California brown bears.
You will be getting up close to two large and powerful waterfalls that flow all year long. The falls are strongest in spring and early summer and they create a cooling mist that blankets the trail continuously.
In the spring the mist is so strong that you will need to wear your rain gear.
