Outside of the Grand Canyon, perhaps no American vista stuns quite like the view from above California's majestic Yosemite National Park. The woman above is posing at Glacier Point, a viewpoint about 2,200 m (7,215 ft) above the valley floor. That giant piece of granite in the distance is Yosemite's famous Half Dome.

Yosemite National Park was established in 1890 and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. Over 3.7 million people visit the park each year.
