Explore Outside San Francisco, Yosemite!

  Since I started to live in San Francisco, I have found much beautiful nature in Northern California. One of the most beautiful views in Northern California is Yosemite National Park which is one of nine National Parks in California State. It takes about three and half hours to get there from San Francisco by car. Every season you go there, you can see different amazing views. Yosemite National Park is best known for its waterfalls whose quantity of water is high in April because of the meltwater.     I went there last week to see winter scenery. There was a gorgeous snowy view, and I could see some big waterfalls. It was difficult to hike on some trails because it had snowed a lot. Even though I choose the Mirror Lake Trail which was one of the easiest trails, I really enjoyed hiking amongst the wonderful nature. There are also many view points to take pictures from the park. One of the most famous view points is called Tunnel View where I could see Half Dome which is famous for rock-climbing.   If you go there in the summer season, you can enjoy camping, hiking and rock-climbing. If you go there in the winter season, you can enjoy winter sports, such as downhill-skiing, cross-country skiing and snowshoe. Each season has different activities with nature. In addition, if you are lucky, you might see wild animals, such as deer, coyotes, and racoons. If you want to explore the amazing nature in Northern California, come to San Francisco and let’s explore it! Are you interested in studying in San Francisco?
