Summary, etc.:
High in the glacier-carved Sierra Nevada mountain range in California near the western edge of the North American continent, there is a place of incredible beauty and heart's solace called Yosemite Valley. There waterfalls leaps from the edge of cliffs into grassy meadows nourished by bubbling streams. The valley is overhung by natural masterpieces of weather-wrong granite including world-famous Half Dome and El Captain. Above the timeless valley, the craggy peaks of the Sierra Nevada high country rise, liberally scattered with pristine alpine lakes, wildflower-strewn meadows, and rugged hiking trails that make you feel as if you are walking on the rooftop of the world. Both the high altitudes and the imperial panoramas will steal your breath away and make your blood course like waterfall rushing with spring snowmelt.
