With fifty nine National Parks in these United States, Yosemite is arguably one of the most talked about – and for good reason. Some of the worlds best photographers visit frequently to capture the dramatic landscape and the world’s premiere rock climbers congregate to conquer it’s massive walls. Whether you have visited the park or not, you likely have a bank of images and a few names that come to mind at the mere mention of the name “Yosemite.” It’s a majestic place that earns a lot of attention, and deservedly so.
This week, we want to hear how you connect with Yosemite National Park – whether you’re a regular visitor or one of us who’s dying to go for the first time. Do scenes come to mind or do you associate Yosemite with the epic adventure stories past or present?
