My first time to Yosemite and it was pretty impressive. Having just got back from Europe, and seeing so many impressive sites, I thought I would have been not so amazed, but it is by far one of the coolest places in the US. We didn't do too many strenuous hikes and we pretty stuck to the beaten path, but we were still awe-struck. It was a great time of the year to be there because it wasn't too busy and the waterfalls were running at full steam! We were also lucky enough to come across a bear hanging aht...word.
