It is impossible to overstate the beauty and grandeur of Yosemite National Park. Seeing it for the first time is an experience like no other. As a first time visitor, my expectations were high. Growing up on the east coast, I was certainly aware of Yosemite. I knew it was beautiful. But I really didn’t know what was there. In fact, I merged Yosemite and Yellowstone in my head and wasn’t sure which one had Old Faithful. I think I learned more about Yellowstone recently from the movie Free Solo, about the rock climber who climbed El Capitan without a rope, than I did in my while live previously.
