Wish You Were Here: Yosemite Celebrates 150th Anniversary

March 14, 2014 at 12:23 PM | by | ()

Looks like the luck of the Irish came early for us, a rainbow stretching across Vernal Falls in Yosemite National Park.

This year, the park celebrates its 150th anniversary, and we're here to take a look at both the past and the present, reflecting on how it all began and where it is today. When Abraham Lincoln created the Yosemite Grant in 1864, it was the first time the Federal government ever set aside a piece of land for preservation.

Follow along with us next week as we walk through and explore this incredible landscape in central California.
