This National Park was just so wonderful it had to have its own entry to get in all the pictures. What a beautiful place.

Yosemite Valley's first residents were the American Indians...they were living there around 6,000 years ago. Non-Indians did not know about Yosemite Valley prior to the 1851. The discovery of GOLD in Sierra Nevada foothills in 1848 brought thousands of gold-seekers.

In 1855 the area's first tourists came and 9 years later, during the Civil War, Lincoln granted Yosemite Valley to the state as the Country's 1st Public Reserve.

The Giant Sequoia is the Most Massive Living Thing on Earth...so, bet you didn't know that! They are thought to live up to 3,000 years. The trees were Spectacular!

You know, I am running out of superlatives to describe all the absolutely wonderful things we are seeing in OUR USA! However, you will understand, please, if I repeat -
