Session Information Yosemite, California Many consider Yosemite to be the crown jewel of the National Park system. First protected in 1864 the park presents a stunning glaciated landscape, including classic U-shaped valleys, moraines, and hanging valleys with iconic waterfalls. Massive granite intrusions form the main rock in the park, mostly intruded during the Cretaceous Period and related to the subduction of the Farallon plate beneath the western margin of North America. Half Dome, El Capitan, and Sentinel Rock are superb monoliths of granite within the park. The Pleistocene glaciers, granitic rocks, and uplift of the Sierra Nevada Mountains are part of the fascinating geologic story of Central California.
