Yosemite, one of the birthplaces of the concept of protecting America's nature. When John Muir wrote,
“No temple made with hands can compare with Yosemite. Every rock in its wall seems to glow with life.” He helped inspire the public to indulge themselves with the vast beauty of this nation. And Yosemite is quite fitting of this admiration, with its structures of stone touching the sky and beyond, and its stunning pines and redwoods following the flows of roaring rapids, it truly is a natural wonder, showing clearly how much this nation has to explore.
Traveling along the valley floor of Yosemite gives the view of godly stone marvels from below, showing how mighty they are from below. But another great way of seeing these feats of nature is to traverse among them, by going along them in the Yosemite High Country. While the old redwoods of the valley floor defiantly don't look their age, growing wide and strong: the junipers of the high country do. Twisted and wise, these trees overlook the vast valley floor from high above.
Once you travel above the floor, you see the start of the powerful waterfalls you can spot from below, lakes and creeks being born from the direct melt of the glaciers and snow of the backcountry. These processes show the tender balance of nature like Yosemite, everything playing a part in the contraption. Yosemite is one of the best representations of this vast nature that America houses, showing the public that every single piece has a part in these ecosystems.
