The Wonderful Vistas Of Yosemite National Park In California Pictured On An Acrylic Fridge Magnet
The tranquil scene depicted on this acrylic fridge magnet, from the catalogues of World Wide Gifts, perfectly captures the natural beauty of Yosemite National Park. Ninety five per cent of the 761,268 acre site is wilderness with the majority of people choosing to visit the Yosemite Valley which covers an area of seven square miles. The formation of the Valley began about one million years ago when ice and snow accumulated on a river bed and its downward movement sculpted the U shape that exists today. As can be seen in the background of the picture on our Yosemite fridge magnet snow is often present and the Valley itself is often covered by snowfall during the winter. As a result, during the season, skiing is a regular pastime of visitors to the park; lessons are available at all levels of expertise.
The Fascinating Scenery And Wildlife In Yosemite National Park, California
The area of Yosemite National Park was first protected in 1864. It provides visitors with a wonderful mix of meadows, mountains, trees, and waterfalls, most of which are represented on our attractive acrylic fridge magnet. If the beautiful scenery is not sufficient to entertain visitors there are plenty of activities to do so. As well as skiing during the season there are courses teaching people how to backpack in the park, horse riding and climbing lessons. Evenings are equally as well catered for as daytime hours and star gazing and fireside storytelling are popular pastimes. Of course there is always the opportunity to combine the splendour of the views with participating in an activity. For those visitors who are keen on photography lessons are available; both experienced snappers and beginners are catered for.
