America's most beautiful national park, in pictures

By Daniel Bukszpan of Mediafeed | Slide 1 of 29: If you’re a fan of the wilderness, you need look no further than Yosemite National Park. Nearly 95% of it is designated as “wilderness,” thanks to the Wilderness Act of 1964, which was enacted by the 88th Congress of the United States.According to the Act, wilderness is an area “where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain." Yosemite National Park fits this description to a tee, and if you decide to venture into it, it’s entirely possible to forget that it’s the year 2021.Due to its unspoiled state, it’s a favorite attraction for hikers, backpackers, and people who just like being outside. Since we’ve all been cooped up inside for over a year, Yosemite could be the perfect place to go for a pandemic detox. We’ve certainly earned it.Here are some photos of Yosemite National Park in all its glory, with a few factoids sprinkled in for your personal edification. We think that after you’ve scrolled through them, you’ll want to put the park on your “must visit” list and why we think it's one of the greatest, if not the greatest, national park.
