Yosemite National Park

You definitely want to put Yosemite on your "bucket list". Towering rock formations, incredible waterfalls, and giant sequoias make it one of the most spectacular parks in the country. The high elevation roads were closed so I was unable to see Glacier Point or drive the Tioga Road across the park (will have to save that for another day). Here, perhaps more than anywhere else I have been, photographs simply do not do the experience justice...

El Capitan
(climbers take 4-6 days scaling this vertical rock - imagine sleeping there)
