Yosemite National Park

Yosemite Falls is the biggest waterfall in North America.

Yosemite is the area that inspired the government to make national parks.

Yosemite has tons and tons of granite.

Half Dome is amazing because long ago it had a dome shaped top but half of it fell off because of some natural disaster.

Carter and I had a lot of fun playing in the snow and having a snowball fight.

  1. Hey Bennett–good job with this report. It made me want to go back to Yosemite, which is one of my favorite places! (I had a chance to climb Half Dome when I was in graduate school–if you are facing the flat face, we went up the right side–the part that curves over, not the flat face, that would have been MUCH harder, don’t you think?)

    Just how many tons of granite does Yosemite have? Has anyone tried to estimate the number?

    Happy New Year!


    1. Hi. I don’t think anybody has tried to make an estimate on how many tons there are.Also I didn’t think about trying to climb Half Dome!


  2. I can’t believe that there I so much granite! I wonder exactly how much?
    I think that having a snowball fight would be so much fun!
    No snow over here in Portaland! Everything is fine here in the Altair School!
    Wish I was there!



  3. Bennett, I never knew that one waterfall could inspire all the national parks. The snowball fight must have been fun! From Nathanael


    1. Hi Nathanael. It wasn’t the waterfall that inspired the government to make the National Parks it was the whole Yosemite. The snowball was really fun but we didn’t actually get to throw many snowballs.


  4. Hi Bennett, are you having a good time? Here at Altair we are memorizing the times tables. I hope that you had a good time when you had a snowball fight. I hope you back next year for Altair!



  5. Hi Bennett,

    You did a great job on your post. I loved learning that Yosemite Falls is the biggest waterfall in North America. It appears that you are having an amazing journey. Enjoy!

  6. I get to visit Yosemite this summer. I can’t wait! The last time I was there was when I went camping with my family in the winter. It was beautiful, and not very crowded at all!
