Yosemite Travel Guide
Yosemite National Park encompasses a spectacular tract of mountain-and-valley scenery in the Sierra Nevada. The park harbors a grand collection of waterfalls, meadows, and forests that include groves of giant sequoias, the world’s largest living things. Most famous is the awe-inspiring Half Dome, a massive granite rock face that juts dramatically out of the glacially-carved valley.

The Yosemite Association supports the Park through outdoor seminars, visitor services, and sale of books, maps and other items. Their site includes much useful information about the Yosemite, including wildlife, trees and flowers, geology, and history.
The Yosemite Institute is a private non-profit organization providing educational adventures in the park.

Yosemite Valley Railroad
The history of the Yosemite Valley Railroad is a fascinating look at an earlier era. An interesting book with many illustrations, Railroads of the Yosemite Valley, is sold at various locations in Mariposa and Yosemite Valley gift shops.
Although the most famous and often visited areas of Yosemite lie within Mariposa County, a trip over Tioga Pass (State Highway 120) to the east side of the Sierra will expose you to a completely different view — sheer granite mountains rising four to six thousand feet from the adjoining Great Basin region. This is also the setting of Mono Lake, a place like nowhere else. For more information see the Mono Lake Committee and the Lee Vining Chamber of Commerce.
