PLAY 
Yosemite National Park is an outdoor adventurer’s dream. Positioned in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains, iconic vistas thrill the senses at every turn. The Half Dome is arguably Yosemite’s most well-known rock formation. The seemingly impossible hike attracts thousands of challengers each year and is remarkable to admire. Glacier Point is one of the best viewpoints within the park and overlooks Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, Vernal Falls, and Nevada Falls. From this peak, one can admire the vastness of the park and if up for the challenge, adventurers can undertake some of the hiking trails for unique views. For serious rock climbers, there’s no cliff more exciting than El Capitan. At 3,000 feet in length, it was once considered impossible to climb, but that has not prevented thousands of thrill seekers from overcoming the task. Along State Route 41 you will find the most scenic view of the park and the best place to see the sunset: Tunnel View. From this vantage point, visitors will have the perfect photo backdrop overlooking El Capitan, Half Dome, and Bridalveil Fall.

For those who crave the thrill of the unknown, El Portal is where you will want to be. The unassuming vibe of the town makes it an ideal destination for backpackers or other such explorers looking for a more authentic experience with fewer crowds.
