Yosemite National Park's Best Photo Spots

14 Fotospots

Yosemite National Park has a rich history that dates back thousands of years, with evidence of Native American tribes inhabiting the area for at least 3,000 years. In 1864, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Grant, protecting the Yosemite Valley and Mariposa Grove, making it the first land set aside for preservation and public use. In 1890, Yosemite became the third national park in the United States, recognized for its stunning granite cliffs, majestic waterfalls, and diverse ecosystem.
