Winter in the valley – Yosemite National Park, CA

Yosemite National Park will never let you down irrespective of the season. Yosemite Valley, approximately 3,000 feet deep and less than a mile wide, is known for its incredible rock formations, created from plutonic rock that cooled far below the earth’s surface.
