Nature’s Bounty-Yosemite National Park

Yosemite valley and national park was on our must-visit list from a long time. When we went on a holiday to west coast of USA this summer, we added Yosemite to our itinerary. 

Our journey to Yosemite valley began by road. We drove from San Francisco to Yosemite. Our home for the next two days was Yosemite View Lodge. This lodge was the perfect choice as it was steps away from the entrance to the National park. A big pat on the back goes to my husband for choosing this wonderful place to stay.

Yosemite View lodge offers the perfect setting for family vacation or romantic getaway. The rooms are rustic, charming and comfortable. All the rooms have fireplaces and kitchenettes.Most of the rooms have magnificent view  of the beautiful valley and the Merced river. 

Yosemite National Park is located in Central California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range. It is 1,200 sq miles of raw nature. Nothing can prepare you for the natural splendor of the valley. The majestic sights of Yosemite National Park are unforgettable. 

We started exploring the park by first visiting Yosemite village. We went to the Yosemite Valley Visitor Center and picked up our maps and all the information. You can ask for more information about the park from the helpful and friendly park rangers.

After that we proceeded to Yosemite Museum and the reconstructed Indian Village of Ahwahnee.
