Yosemite National Park, California  - Lower Yosemite Falls (more places to go and see) 
I hiked the entirety of the falls a few years ago when I began university. It is nice to return in the winter.
Yosemite Valley is nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountain range. It was once the home of Pauite and Ahwahnechee people until the Gold Rush era in the 19th Century. The Ahwahnechee were considered by both the Pauite and White American settlers as ‘violent,’ and were given the name yohhe’meti (“they are the killers”). Eventually their village was burned and sent to Freshno on a reservation. A few returned to the Valley, but were in trouble after attacking miners, they fled to Mono Lake and stayed with the local tribe, until they were caught stealing horses. Eventually the Ahwahnechee were killed by the Mono tribe. The United States government declares their tribe ‘extinct.’ Who knew such a pretty place had a dark history. 
Here is a good song for this dark place.
