Glaciers, waterfalls, hundreds of miles of trails, wildlife, thousands of species of plants, giant sequoias. Yosemite National Park boasts a variety of landscapes that attracts over three million visitors each year. This is a pictorial tribute to one of the oldest and beloved national parks. It not only presents outstanding colour photographs of the familiar Yosemite vistas (Half Dome, El Capitan, Bridalveil Falls, Yosemite Falls), but also showcases the back-country areas (Tuolumne Meadows, Mount Dana and Dana Meadow, Tioga Pass). The substantial captions reflect author George Wuerthner's strong background in geology and natural history, and make this a well-rounded look at what makes the park so special. Chapters are divided geographically, with an emphasis on the Yosemite Valley and Tuolumne Meadows areas -- the most popular, highly visited areas of the park. This will be a treasured keepsake for visitors to this famous park.
