Today you'll be heading out into nature to experience America's most epic national park, Yosemite. It's awesome vistas galore as you drive past towering cliffs, out of this world waterfalls, and pretty meadows filled with wild flowers. As you hit the trails on your second day in Yosemite National Park, make sure you keep an eye out for wildlife also roaming the trails such as deer, elk and - if you're lucky - bears. With over 800 miles of trails within the park, a great place to start your adventure is on The Mist Trail hike, where you'll pass two of Yosemite's most beautiful waterfalls, Vernal and Nevada Falls. No matter which trail you head along, you'll have a blast. If that isn't enough, you can even float down the Merced River on a rubber ring for a totally different perspective of this truly incredible place.
