Yosemite National Park park spans nearly 1,200 square miles on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada range in central eastern California.
Each year more than 3 million visitors go to Yosemite to see magnificent rock formations, grassy meadows, crystal-clear streams, majestic waterfalls, rushing rivers, ancient giant sequoia trees, and abundant wildlife.
