Photo Essay: From Yosemite With Love

Yosemite National Park is one of our favorites in California, in the US, in the world. It’s almost too perfect to be real: white granite peaks of the Sierra Nevada, glacial valleys, a large wilderness, crystal clear lakes and creeks and a bunch of very impressive waterfalls. And it is real – the national park was established in 1890. It just seems right that it’s on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites as well because of its unique landscape formed by glaciation.

And our reason to talk about Yosemite (again… 😀 ) is that May and June are the most perfect time to see its amazing waterfalls. Some of them can even dry out by late summer but after thaw they are the prettiest and the most powerful. Of course, once you have your excuse to visit, it’s worth taking your time because Yosemite is so much more than the stunning waterfalls of Yosemite Valley! (Not that those would not be enough.)

Sharing some of our favorite photos we hope to give you some inspiration – but please note we are not to be held responsible if they make you book a trip to Yosemite immediately. 🙂

Glacier Point offers one of the most breathtaking panoramas we’ve seen in the US:
