Yosemite National Park Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia
Yosemite National Park sits on the western slopes of California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains. Most visitors spend their time in Yosemite Valley, which despite being only 7 miles long and 1 mile wide, packs in more jaw-dropping scenery than just about any other place on Earth.
Near the valley entrance stop at Tunnel View, and stand before a panorama that’s reduced generations of visitors to silence. From Tunnel View it’s just a short drive to Bridalveil Fall. Fed by snowmelt, the fall reaches its thundering peak in May.
The Yosemite Valley ring road follows the banks of the Merced River, which shifts in character as it thunders from the valley walls, before gently winding across the valley floor. The ring road is dotted with trailheads that lead to 800 miles of hiking trails. The Four Mile Trail climbs the valley’s southern wall to two of Yosemite’s great outlooks, Glacier Point and Washburn Point. Further along the ring road is the trailhead for The Mist Trail, which offers stunning views of Vernal and Nevada Falls.
For thousands of years, the Ahwaneechee had villages throughout this valley, but it was at the base of Yosemite Falls where their great chief resided. Take the one-hour hike to the lower falls, or spend the day climbing all the way to the upper falls.
To the north of Yosemite Valley, is Tioga Road, one of the USA’s most scenic highways. Fill your lungs with alpine air at Olmsted Point, refresh yourself by the waters of Tenaya Lake, then spend the day at Tuolumne Meadow, the traditional summer hunting grounds of the Ahwaneechee.
From its high country to its waterfalls, its towering sequoia groves to its valley meadows, Yosemite is an American story unlike any other.

I made this trip in July 2017. Video shot with a Brinno TLC-200 Pro time-lapse camera mounted on my roof with a homemade magnetic case. I travel with two Brinno cameras - one facing forward, the other in reverse. Sometimes the reverse camera captures better video (fewer raindrops and bugs hit the rear-view lens).

Shocking Facts About Glacier National Park & How Big Is!
After the area's official designation as a national park in 1910, an increasing number of tourists made the trek. To accommodate the crowds, the Great Northern Railway constructed a series of chalets and hotels that were designed to mimic lodges in Switzerland. These designs, combined with the use of natural materials, were dubbed “parkitecture.” Though WWII caused many of the lodgings to fall into disrepair, some of the buildings were saved and are registered as National Historic Landmarks.
Triple Divide Peak has the unique distinction of sending water to the Pacific, Atlantic, and Arctic oceans. The Continental Divide and Northern Divide, which direct water flow to the oceans, converge at the peak’s summit. This means that any water that falls on Triple Divide Peak will flow to the Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean (by way of the Gulf of Mexico) or Arctic Ocean (by way of Hudson Bay, which is sometimes considered part of the Arctic Ocean).
Wooden boat tours have been a feature of Glacier since the 1920s and many of the original boats still cruise today. Among the oldest is the Sinopah, a 45-foot vessel that carries visitors through Two Medicine Lake, as well as Little Chief, a 49-passenger boat found at Saint Mary Lake.

Chinatown Los Angeles
California travel expert Veronica Hill of tours Chinatown Los Angeles in this episode of California Travel Tips.
When you think of Chinatown, colorful paper lanterns, delightful dim sum and fierce Chinese dragons may come to mind. The truth is, Chinatown Los Angeles has all of that and more.
Established in 1938, LA's New Chinatown along Broadway and Hill streets, makes a fun and exotic day trip.
Chinatown history dates back to 1852, when the Chinese arrived in Los Angeles. Located on the site of Union Station, Old Chinatown fell into disrepair during the mid 1910s, and it was demolished.
Today, Chinatown LA is home to more than 15,000 Asian residents, who live, play and worship here every day.
The Taoist temple on Yale Street is one of the largest and the most beautiful in Southern California. Here, worshippers pray to the goddess of the seas, lighting incense and offering up fruit and vegetables, which are used to feed the poor.
During Chinese New Year, oranges are offered at this temple's altar for good luck and fortune. The celebration continues with crackling fireworks and a festive Chinese New Year parade with colorful dragons, flags and dancers along North Broadway. The event draws more than 50,000 spectators a year.
One of the best things about Chinatown in LA is the performances by the Shaolin monks from the Henan province of China. These incredibly talented kung fu masters perform the first and third Sunday of each month in Central Plaza.
At 628 W. College St., you can check out the former Bruce Lee martial arts studio. This was his third (and final) kung fu training academy in the United States.
Central Plaza's Gin Ling Way, named for the street of Golden Treasures in Old Peking, is colorful mix of Chinese restaurants, fortune tellers, art galleries and amusements. You may even see a Chinese contortionist act.
While you're in Central Plaza, don't miss the colorful Chinese dragon mural painted by Tyrus Wong, then throw a coin for luck at the Seven Star Sacred Caverns wishing pool. The five-tiered Hop Louie Pagoda was built in 1941.
Chinatown shopping choices are endless. Check out Realm, one of Chinatown's hip new home stores, then pick up some Chinese art or jade jewelry at the K.G. Louie Company, a gift shop dating back to 1935. At Sincere Imports, you'll discover Chinese lanterns, masks and other fun souvenirs.
Did you know the fortune cookie was invented right here in Los Angeles in 1916? Created by George Jung of the Hong Kong Noodle Company, these sweet treats are still made fresh daily in Chinatown's Wonder Bakery, where you'll also find some great Boba tea.
You can't leave Chinatown without indulging in some good Chinese food. Just be sure the restaurant you go to has an A in the window. Anything less won't do!
My picks for the best Chinatown restaurants are Yang Chow, known for its slippery shrimp, and, for the best dim sum in Chinatown, the Empress Pavilion. Follow this up with a slice of strawberry whipped cream cake at Phoenix Bakery, and your meal is complete.
Everything old is new again, and Chinatown is quickly becoming an LA hot spot. In fact, Brad Pitt was recently seen at Central Plaza's Mountain Bar, and director Quentin Tarantino now owns the historic King Hing Theater. Word has it that Tarantino plans to catalog, restore and showcase vintage Chinese and kung fu movies in the 425-seat theater, but the building still sits empty.
If you're looking for a fun alternative to California's standard tourist attractions, Chinatown won't disappoint.
IF YOU GO...
Los Angeles Chinatown directions: Take the 101 freeway and exit at Alameda Street near Union Station. Drive north to Broadway and park in the many lots (average $3-$5 per day) or Chinatown parking meters about town. Central Plaza is located on Gin Ling Way between Broadway and Hill streets near College St.

레이크타호는 한라산 높이 정도인 해발 1,897m에 위치하고 있다. 호수보다는 거의 바다에 가까운 느낌을 준다. 가로 19km 세로 35km 둘레가 115km에 이르며 깊이는 501m에 이른다고 한다. 호수주변도로를 차로 한 바퀴 도는데 1시간 반이 걸렸다. 레이크 타호는 주변을 둘러싸고 있는 많은 위락시설과 스키장들의 중심이기도하다. 많은 관광객들이 위락시설이나 스키장등을 찾아 왔더라도 레이크 타호 방문을 대체로 빼놓지 않고 있다.
