After visiting a bunch of amazing areas and national parks across America last summer, I really thought I had seen the best. Arches. Monument Valley. The Grand Canyon. What could possibly top those?

Well, Yosemite may have just blown all the other national parks I've seen out of the water. There's a reason, I think, that so many people list this park as their favorite.

I usually reserve this full-size photo layout for my Photo of the Day posts. But Yosemite National Park is just so amazing and breathtaking, that I feel like this collection of photos deserves the full-size treatment.

I'll be doing a later post covering the facts and tips associated with visiting Yosemite. But, for now, just enjoy the view.

  1. Beautiful photos! I’ve long wanted to visit Yosemite, and want to even more after seeing these.

    My favorite park so far has to be Glacier National Park. Have you been there? Definitely recommend if you haven’t yet visited. I’m looking forward to more info/pictures from Yosemite. Thanks!

      No I haven’t been to Glacier National Park yet! But I’ve seen photos – it looks incredible!
