Yosemite National Park embraces a spectacular tract of mountain-and-valley scenery in the Sierra Nevada, which was set aside as a national park in 1890. The park harbors a grand collection of waterfalls, meadows, and forests that include groves of giant sequoias, the world's largest living things.
Highlights of the park include Yosemite Valley with its high cliffs and waterfalls, Wawona's history center and historic hotel, the Mariposa Grove that contains hundreds of ancient giant sequoias, Glacier Point's spectacular view of Yosemite Valley and the high country, Tuolumne Meadows subalpine meadow surrounded by mountain peaks, and Hetch Hetchy, a reservoir in a valley considered a twin of Yosemite Valley.
