Google celebrates Yosemite’s birthday

The Google homepage is celebrating Yosemite National Park‘s 123rd birthday.

google_yosemiteYosemite was designated by an act of Congress on Oct. 1, 1890, making it the United States’ third national park, after Yellowstone (1872) and Sequoia (1890).

Because of the government shutdown, however, you won’t be able to visit the park to help celebrate the occasion in person. So, spend a few minutes watching a day in the life of the park.

Additionally, here is a video of Alex Honnond climbing in Yosemite National Park.
