Yosemite National Park

This is a picture of a valley called Yosemite National Park. We went on a vacation there a couple weeks ago. On our last day, a bear walked through our campsite! . I really liked Yosemite and it was very fun.
This picture is of Half Dome. Half Dome is made of one kind of rock called granite.
My brother loves trains a lot. We surprised him with a trip on an old steam engine near Yosemite.
My mom found a butterfly and she put the butterfly on her finger. I put a little water on my finger and let the butterfly climb onto my finger. Then I showed my brother and Daddy. Buddy wanted to have the butterfly on his finger too but it got scared and flew away.
This picture is of the Grizzly tree. It started growing when Cleopatra was ruling in Egypt.This tree was so big that years ago, before Yosemite was a national park, people cut a hole through the tree to drive a car through it. The huge trees here brought attention to the area and many people like John Muir and Galen Clark helped to make it a national treasure.
