Visit Yosemite National Park

"The beauty and charm of the wilderness are his for the asking, for the edges of the wilderness lie close beside the beaten roads of the present travel." - Theodore Roosevelt 
On September 3rd, 1964, the Wilderness Act was signed into law, setting aside 9.1 million acres of land as areas "where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain". Fifty-three years later, about 110 million acres of US federal lands are protected wilderness, 704,624 of which are within Yosemite. Have you experienced their beauty and charm?
