Yosemite is nature's playground with scenery so stunning that even the large number of people who come to enjoy it can't detract from its beauty. Waterfalls tumble hundreds of feet to the valley floor. Climbers scale vertiginous cliffs, testing their skills and the nerves of onlookers. Giant sequoias tower over Mariposa Grove as they have for centuries. And the sight of Half Dome stops visitors in their tracks. Yosemite lives up to even the highest expectations.
