Yosemite of Yesteryear – Early Hotels Revisited

Big Trees Lodge (Wawona)

Yosemite Pioneer Cemetery – Revisited

Yosemite Cemetery

In the cemetery at Yosemite rests some of the pioneers of the first 100 years of Yosemite’s history.

Some were Native Americans whose ancestors inhabited the Valley long before the first westerners entered.
