Yosemite National Park adds 400 acres, its first expansion in 70 years

Yosemite National Park is expanding for the first time in 70 years. Adding another 400 acres along its western boundary.
The new addition called "Ackerson Meadow" is a combination of three connected lush meadows watered by a year-around creek.
The Trust for Public Land purchased the property from private owners for 2.3 million dollars and then donated it to the park.
