Yosemite Park through the eyes of Jui Mathuria

“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where Nature may heal and cheer and give strength to body and soul alike,” wrote John Muir in his beloved 1912 book The Yosemite. 

More than a century later, the giant California park still reaches those lofty goals via its dramatic landscapes, diverse outdoor pursuits, and the possibility of soul-searching reflection.

I was my very first day at las Vegas, United States, when my relatives thought of driving us till Yosemite, But we by mistake took the wrong route and it took us approximately 14 hours  instead of 6 Hours in Car.

Finally we reached our Hotel late past midnight, by this time I kind off had lost my interest to see Yosemite as I felt quite exhausted of traveling.

But the very next day in the Morning when we left to see the Yosemite Park, I felt enlivened the moment I saw the radiance in my surrounding,  I couldn’t stop myself from clicking pictures of the scenery. It was so breath-taking, truly Magnificent!


Stretching nearly 8 miles (12.8 km) from east to west and with granite walls more than twice the height of the Empire State Building, Yosemite Valley is one of the wonders of the natural world.

Every Minute spend In Yosemite National Park brought me new surprises and breathtaking views

There was a board by which I came to know that Snow plants typically bloom between 4,000 & 9,000ft in elevation from April-July, though late winter storms and heavy snowpack could mean an extension of their average season in the higher elevations.

Now About Rock Formations,

Over eons, rivers and glaciers somehow carved 3,000 feet into solid granite to create Yosemite Valley. The nuances of the Valley form spectacular rock formations.

The View was spectacular. Honestly there is nothing more beautiful I had ever seen.

There are 5 Famous Rock Formations  to see during the Yosemite Visit, 

  • Glacier Point 
  • Sentinel Rock
  • Three Brothers 
  • Cathedral Rocks and Spires 
  • El Captain 
  • Half Dome 

As a fact all Roads lead to Yosemite National Park 

Surprising isn’t it?

This illustrated map credited to the National Park Service and titled “Yosemite National Park” shows all of Yosemite and is oriented with North at the top.

The Flow of water was so strong that it would literally carry huge blocks of stones with itself.

The water brought vibrancy and a feeling of calmness in the area

After 8 hours of exploring the most ravishing place in California we drove back to San-Francisco.

Its been 3 years since I came back but I reminisce about the alluring scenic beauty every once a while.
