Yosemite National Park is one of the most popular National Parks. At least it seems that way if you ever try to reserve a campsite less than six months ahead of time. Because of its popularity, I had to include a photo of Yosemite in our National Park Week celebration. 
The park was once the stomping ground of John Muir, one of the champions of wilderness preservation, back when the National Park idea was just getting started. It ranges from the Hetch Hetchy area to the north and Sequoia trees to the south, encompasing gorgeous mountains, rivers, waterfalls and fields in between.
This photo captures the iconic Half Dome of Yosemite National Park the morning after a surprise spring snowstorm.  At least, my family was surprised by it, we hadn’t packed any coats. As you can see the area is beautiful, no matter what the weather may be.
