The Yosemite National Park has a glaciated landscape that is adorned with underlying rocks, creating the captivating scenery of the park. The park features a variety of rounded domes, jagged peaks, u-shaped canyons, moraines and waterfalls which create a striking mix of landscape in the park.
The park is home to the tallest waterfall of North America, the Yosemite Falls. The flow of water has shaped the landscape of this area quite significantly while the spring floods have altered the shape of the land quite a few times. A lot of areas of the park feature snowfall during the winter season every year, another important source of water for the falls and connected lakes.
Almost 95% of the total area of the Yosemite National Park is considered to be wilderness, i.e. an area that is unchanged by the people or by any type of construction work. In this area of the park, you would not be able to find roads, cars, electricity or any other modern convenience.
