P.N. Yosemite: In the Sierra Central is the Yosemite National Park. Yosemite Valley, is one of the most incredible geological spectacles in the world. Yosemite, is a valley created by glaciers that were displaced by the Merced River canyon. The ice layers removed most fragile granite and eroded the toughest, which form the walls of the valley. The lake which was formed with the melting of the glacier are drained to form the bottom of the valley.
