I learned about a photographer in the museum and then went to the bookstore to purchase his book, "The Photographer's Guide to Yosemite." That book helped me find the best locations for shooting the different park highlights. I'm so grateful for that book. We also...More

This seems to be the "hub" for information, activity, etc. The short time that I spent in this area, I noticed that they had an information desk, restaurant, Yosemite store, restroom, water fountain, and a sitting area, nearby rentals, just to name a few things....More

Wow! Loved how Nature played its part here. One of the best National Parks I would say. The cliffs and the falls are picture perfect. Time slowed down, as me and my family hiked and took pictures of the park. Every lake, every falls, stream,...More

Pack up your bike and head to Yosemite Village. If you do not bike bring the dog. Note leash laws enforced in the park. There are a couple of places to eat or bring your lunch. Beautiful sights.

Of all that Yosemite offers, this mess is totally out of place. Tour bus Mecca. Food is terrible. It is the location of the Yosemite Museum which is a must.
