YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, approximately 200 miles by road from San Francisco, is a superb vacation land embracing 1,189 square miles of spectacular mountain country. The two main rivers which flow through the park originate high in the mountain snows and are fed by hundreds of icy streams and snow bordered lakes. Included in the park are also three magnificent groves of Big Trees, most noted of which is the Mariposa Grove.

Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Grove were set aside in 1864 by act of Congress, signed by Abraham Lincoln, to be administered as a public trust by the State of California. In 1890 the greater Yosemite National Park surrounding these areas was created, and in 1906 the State re-ceded the Valley and the Grove to the Federal Government.


The Yosemite Valley, 7 miles long, averaging 1 mile in width and 4,000 feet above sea level, was cut to its present depth by the Merced River which runs through it. The river was repeatedly accelerated to torrential speed by the uplifts which in the course of many million years have given the Sierra Nevada their great height. With each increase in velocity, the river cut its channel deeper, and at last fashioned a narrow V-shaped canyon over 2,000 feet in depth. The lesser side streams, meanwhile, were unable to cut so fast, and their valleys were left hanging high above the bottom of the canyon. The canyon thus became adorned by many cascades of great height.

With the coming of the ice age, Yosemite Canyon was invaded by mighty glaciers that descended from the crest of the range. During the climax of this age, ice filled the canyon literally to the brinks and extended down beyond the site of El Portal. It reached within 700 feet of the crown of Half Dome and overrode Glacier Point to a depth of 700 feet. Forcing its way with tremendous power, it gradually widened the narrow V-shaped canyon to a broad U-shaped trough. It cut back the sloping sides to sheer cliffs and transformed the cascades into leaping waterfalls. It also added to the depth of the Valley, excavating a lake basin in its rock floor. When at last the glacier melted away it left a lake 5-1/2 miles long. But the lake did not endure, for the Merced River brought down vast quantities of sand and gravel which finally filled the lake completely and produced the level park-like floor.


Nowhere else in the world may be seen a waterfall spectacle such as is found in Yosemite National Park. The Upper Yosemite Fall, highest free leaping waterfall in the world, drops 1,430 feet in one sheer fall, a height equal to approximately nine Niagara Falls piled one on top of the other. The lower Yosemite Fall, immediately below, has a drop of 320 feet, or two Niagaras more. Counting the series of cascades in between, the total drop from the crest of the upper to the base of the lower fall is 2,425 feet. Vernal Fall has a drop of 317 feet; Illilouette Fall, 370 feet. The Nevada Fall drops 594 feet; the celebrated Bridalveil Fall, 620 feet; and the Ribbon Fall, 1,612 feet.

The falls are at their fullest in May and June while the winter snows are melting. They are still running in July, but some are entirely dry by August 15 when there has been little rain or snow.


Glacier Point, above the Valley rim, commands a magnificent view of the High Sierra. Spread before the eye is one of the world's grandest panoramas of domes and waterfalls, dominated by Half Dome which rises almost sheer 4,890 feet above the Valley floor. A few steps from the hotel one looks down into Yosemite Valley, 3,254 feet below.

An excellent highway which leaves the Wawona Road at Chinquapin leads through forests of pine and fir to Glacier Point. A popular feature during the summer is the firefall which is pushed from the Point every night at 9 o'clock, its glowing embers falling in a 900-foot tinkling golden cascade to a barren rocky ledge below.

Half a mile from the main road above Glacier Point is Sentinel Dome, 8,117 feet above sea level, where an unobstructed panorama may be had from the coast range on the west to the snow-capped ridge of the Sierra on the east. Atop this dome is a famous wind blown Jeffrey pine tree. From this point one may see El Capitan, Cathedral Rocks, North Dome and Half Dome, ranging from 2,592 to 4,892 feet above the Valley floor.


One of the best known groves of Big Trees outside of Sequoia National Park is the Mariposa Grove within Yosemite, near South Entrance. It is reached via the Wawona Road, and is only 35 miles by high-gear paved road from the Yosemite Valley, a 1-1/2-hour drive each way.

This grove contains some 200 trees, 10 feet or more in diameter at breast height, and thousands of younger trees. Reproduction is healthy, and the trees show a remarkable resistance to fire, fungi, and insects.

The Grizzly Giant is considered the oldest tree in the grove; its age is estimated at 3,800 years. The maximum base diameter is 34.7 feet, and the average diameter at the base is 27.6 feet. It has a girth of 96.5 feet and a height of 209 feet. Near the museum is the fallen Massachusetts Tree, 280 feet long and 28 feet in diameter. As the tree is broken into several sections, it provides a fine opportunity to study the growth rings and the character of the wood.

Visitors may continue up the loop road to the famous Wawona Tree and drive through the tunnel, 8 feet wide and 26 feet long, that was cut through it in 1881. This tree is 231 feet tall and 27.5 feet in diameter. A little farther up the road a wonderful view over the Wawona Basin and South Fork Canyon may be had at Wawona Point, elevation 6,890 feet; especially fine are the views at sunset.

In the Tuolumne Grove, located on the Big Oak Flat Road, 17 miles from the Valley, is another tree through which cars may be driven. A third grove, the Merced, is an unusually beautiful area in a secluded corner of the park. It is reached by a good dirt road, and is about 8 miles west of Crane Flat.


Wawona, 27 miles south of the Valley, near the Mariposa Grove of Big Trees, is located in a beautiful mountain meadow on the scenic Wawona Road. Here saddle and pack animals may be secured for trips to fine fishing lakes and streams in the southern part of the park. Among other sports to be enjoyed are tennis, golf, and swimming. A post office, gas station, store, hotel, and free public campground are available.


About 55 miles from Yosemite Valley, and reached over Big Oak Flat and Tioga Roads, is Tuolumne Meadows, the largest in the Sierra Nevada. A lodge, store, garage, and gas station are operated in July and August; and a free public campground is available when the road is open.


A good oiled mountain road leads to scenic Hetch Hetchy, 38 miles from Yosemite Valley. This road passes through the Tuolumne Grove of Big Trees and magnificent stands of sugar pine and fir.


The All-Year Highway is never closed, and the Wawona Road is open during the winter, except for short periods after unusually heavy snows. It is advisable to carry chains for use in heavy storms. Information on snow sports and winter road conditions may be obtained from automobile associations. It is necessary to make reservations well in advance for accommodations for Saturday nights and holidays from December 25 to February 25.

On Glacier Point Road, near Badger Pass, excellent ski slopes may be easily reached by car; the road is kept open by rotary snow-plows. A ski lodge, where ski equipment may be rented and light lunches and refreshments are served, is located at Badger Pass, elevation 7,300 feet.

The Yosemite Valley, enclosed by granite walls which shut out the winds, has a mild winter climate. On the northern side one may motor, ride horseback, and hike in comfort, while on the southern side, screened from the sun by the towering cliffs, popular winter sports may be enjoyed throughout the winter season which usually lasts from December 15 to March 1. Appropriate equipment and clothing may be rented in the Valley.


Before the coming of white men, the rainbow trout was native in streams up to the floor of Yosemite Valley. Above the waterfalls the streams and lakes were barren. Trout planting in the region began in 1878, was given impetus when the park was created in 1890, and was greatly augmented in 1926 when the State Fish Hatchery was built at Happy Isles. Now each year a million or more trout are planted by park rangers and as a result all of the principal lakes and streams are stocked with trout. (See Rules and Regulations—back cover.)


Because of the great range in altitude of about 2,000 feet to over 13,000 feet and the varied moisture conditions, there are over 1,200 varieties of flowering plants in the park. Five life zones are represented, ranging from the brush belt of the lowest altitudes, with its manzanita, wild lilac, live oak, and digger pine, to the alpine-arctic zone, where only lichens, mosses, and a few alpine flowering plants can grow. Early spring marks the flowering of redbud and mountain dogwood, followed by such shrubs as azalea, spirea, ocean spray, and syringa.

Approximately 100 species of mammals, more than 200 varieties of birds, about 25 kinds of reptiles, and a dozen kinds of amphibians are to be found here. There are few places where vertebrates are more abundant or more easily seen and studied.

Bears are numerous and though apparently tame, they are still wild animals, and those encountered along the highways are dangerous. These animals are not easily frightened away when they approach too close to persons or cars. Visitors are warned to keep a safe distance from the bears and must not feed them.

Deer may be seen throughout the park, particularly in the meadows in late afternoon. During June and July the fawns are born, and are usually well concealed by the does in the tall grass of the meadows. However, when fawns are discovered, they should be left strictly alone. They are born without animal scent—a protection of nature to safeguard them from their enemies. Does have been known to refuse to care for their own young which have been handled by human beings. If visitors go too near the fawn, the doe is likely to charge and attack with her front hoofs.
