In Yosemite National Park sits a grand old national historic landmark called the Wawona® Hotel. Its origination served as a resting spot and primitive inn for pioneers. Many times remodeled, Wawona remains open to visitors to enjoy a tranquil respite under mighty aged pine trees and oaks.
The light streaming over mounded turf casts bands of color, light and shadow inviting the guest to sit down with a good book and stay a while.
