“If you go to Yosemite, I recommend you arrive early to enjoy all the beautiful views that the place offers, there are places where you can stop to rest and observe the waterfalls trees and mountains that are in the place, when you reach the valley you will be surprised with the height and shape of the mountains, depending on the season of the year at the top of the mountains you will find snow”

National Park
“If you're feeling like an adventurous day trip, it is possible to do one day trip to the Yosemite National Parks!! Each one way is about 4hrs non-stop. Otherwise you can camp here or choose one of the glamping options that the park has to offer. Each vehicle is charged $35 for one entry or $85 for all national park visit. If you do go here, make sure your first stop is the visitor's office, the rangers here are well versed in all the hikes here and can best cater your experience to your needs. On top of that, they're the most well-informed people you'd find here regarding park and road conditions. Yosemite is well known for the: - Half Dome - Hetchy Hetchy reservoir - Tuolumme Meadows”

“Hike 2.2 miles/3.5 km round trip: Sentinel Dome is at the upper end of the easy category, due to the short but steep foray up the side of the dome to the summit. Once there, though, you'll find 360 degrees of view encompassing Yosemite Valley, the high Sierras, and (on unusually clear days) the coastal range. ”
