Get lost on this mystical hiking adventure on the Mist Trail | Yosemite National Park
Yosemite National Park is widely known for such iconic sites including Half Dome, El Capitan, and giant sequoia trees. Yosemite National Park was first established in October 1890. Pioneer John Muir, his counterparts, and others help paved the way in protecting this precious land of nature. The pristine landscapes of meadows and waterfalls have been here for years. It’s first residents were the Native Americans. Shortly thereafter, settlers and gold miners came to the area. The tourists then found their way here as well and unfortunately, so did the damage to the area’s ecosystem. There are several hiking trails of all levels that you can explore throughout the entire park. The Mist trail is one of the options to use to reach the Half Dome trail which takes to the world renowned Half Dome. Stay tuned for part 2: Hiking up the Half Dome cables! *Your time is precious, so I sincerely thank you for your support and following along to this journey of life's adventures!
