There are countless things to do while visiting Yosemite National Park, but why not compile a list of 10 things that any visitor to the Park should consider.
在優勝美地國家公園我們可以做的事情非常多， 但何不列出一個十大清單做來， 以供後來的遊客參考呢？
Arguably one of the most iconic sites within Yosemite National Park, Yosemite Falls is a must see whether you’re a regular or a first-time visitor to the Park. The 2,425-foot Falls are the largest in the world. You might want to bring a poncho when you’re visiting them—chances are you‘ll get a little mist on your face!
優勝美地國家公園最具有代表性的景點莫過於優勝美地瀑布了， 不論你是第一次過來還是常客， 優勝美地瀑布永遠都是必看的。 她有2425英尺高，是世界上最大的瀑布。當你遊覽此地的時候， 你可能會考慮帶一上雨披，因為可能臉上會鋪上一層霧氣。
While visiting Yosemite, seeing Half Dome is almost (dare it be said) imperative! Take in the view on a two-mile round-trip hike to Mirror Lake; or, if you’re feeling adventurous, take the 14- to 16-mile hike to the top of the 5,000-foot granite formation, with the last 400 feet on metal cables.
來到這裡， 到景點半圓頂一趟也不可避免的！ 沿途邊賞景， 邊獨步走上約兩英里就到了Mirror Lake, 後者， 當你徒步走上14-16英里約5000英尺的岩石層的時候， 你可能感覺自在冒險。 到這裡才有最後的的400英尺的鐵索電纜。
Get ready for a truly fulfilling journey to Glacier Point. This hour-long drive from Yosemite Valley is unquestionably a must see for visitors. There is no better view of all of Yosemite Valley and the surrounding high country than there is while at Glacier Point. Want to get a hike in too? Take the hikers’ bus up to Glacier Point and then hike the Four Mile Trail back to Yosemite Valley.
想要體驗一次真正的冰川之旅的話， 優勝美地國家峽谷做一次一份小時之久的體驗無疑使最好的選擇。 沒有比這裡更美的風景和高的鄉村了， 也想要做徒步遠足嗎？坐上旅行者的公共汽車到達Glacier Point頂端再徒步四英里小道回优诗美地国家峽谷。
Located near the Park’s south entrance, Mariposa Grove of Big Trees is Yosemite’s largest collection of sequoias and other trees thousands of years old. Unless you’re completely exhausted, take a self-guided hike through the Mariposa Grove. The 209-foot Grizzly Giant is a simple 0.8-mile hike from the parking lot, and the famous Fallen Wawona Tree is moderate 1.5-mile hike past the Giant itself.
位于公园的南入口，能看到蒼天大樹的Mariposa Grove是優勝美地國家公園最大的红杉和几千年老齡的树的集中地。除非你已經精力疲憊， 否則你可以自我防衛地獨步橫穿Mariposa Grove. 209英尺的最老的巨大紅杉足有從停車場開始的0.8英尺那麼遠， 2700年的樹齡。 著名的瓦沃纳樹從大紅杉穿過， 徒步約有1.5英里。
5.Ansel Adams Photo Gallery
People say that it’s impossible to take a bad picture of Yosemite. Every which way you turn, for miles, you’re surround by gorgeous images of nature and breath-taking views of majestic trees, mountains and waterfalls. Located in Yosemite Valley, the Ansel Adams Gallery is a classy shop dedicated to displaying and honoring the photography of Mr. Adams himself, along with many other works of art.
This breath-taking, panoramic viewpoint in Yosemite is a classic for any visitor to the Park. Tunnel View is located just below the Wawona Tunnel on the Wawona Road. It’s at this specific area that El Capitan, Bridalveil Fall, and Half Dome couldn’t be more photogenic!
If you’re traveling with children and want to partake in fun activities like biking, horseback riding or simply looking for a place to eat, Yosemite Village can be your “one stop shop.” While the Village offers plenty of great restaurants and a food store, our Visitor Center is located here, offering historical and general information.
A mild hike with a subtle incline, Mirror Lake offers visitors a spectacular and serene stop during your vacation. The distance of the Mirror Lake hike is just short of a mile and can be completed, round-trip, within an hour. Don’t rush—take your time to take in all the beauty that is around the lake itself.
A pastoral meadow surrounded by granite crags and polished domes, Tuolumne Meadows is a definite “must see” while in Yosemite. While visiting the Meadows, be sure to stop at Olmsted Point for a remarkable view of both the back side of Half Dome, Tenaya Canyon and Tenaya Lake.
While it’s not as popular to tourists and visitors as is Yosemite Valley, Hetch Hetchy offers spectacular scenery to all those who visit. The Hetch Hetchy Reservoir is the source of much of the drinking water for the San Francisco Bay Area. Though the road to Hetch Hetchy is open year-round, there are times throughout the year (primarily during winter months) when it may close periodically due to snow fall. Hetch Hetchy is a great starting point for many of the less-used trails throughout Yosemite!
