The US Government has shut down thanks to much political maturity and reasonable behavior over the rollout of the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) and some of the victims are the 401 wonderful National Parks which have been closed and will be cleared out over the next few days.
Today marks the 123rd anniversary of California’s Yosemite National Park, and thanks to this shutdown, we’re not even allowed to visit to drop off a birthday cake. In 1890, with the help of John Muir and Robert Underwood Johnson, President Benjamin Harrison signed a bill declaring Yosemite a National Park.
So since you can’t physically visit the magnificent home of Half Dome, El Capitan, and giant sequoia trees, I thought it would be a nice tribute to show off a handful of beautiful Yosemite photographs from Redbubble artists.
