Yosemite Valley

Yosemite Valley

The most popular part of Yosemite National Park is Yosemite Valley, where a 7-mile long road follows the Merced River and all the iconic sites can be viewed.

Looking east, this shot was taken from the far western end of the Valley near the Pohono Bridge.  Six shots were “stitched” together to make this panorama.  On the far left is Horsetail Fall, just a thin white line from this distance.  To the right of it is the imposing face of El Capitan.  On the right, below the lone cloud, are three peaks that make up the Cathedral Spires, and just below the middle peak is the top of Bridalveil Fall.  Yosemite Falls and Half Dome are at the far eastern end of the valley, not visible from here.

Truly majestic, some of God’s greatest handiwork.

Thought for the Day:  I’d rather be in the mountains thinking about God than in church thinking about the mountains.                                                                John Muir

    This is beautiful. I’ve really got to get out of Nebraska more often ☹

    Brent and I are planning a trip to Washington DC, NYC, Boston and Niagara Falls this Fall. Really looking forward to it. I didn’t think I’d EVER get him to the East coast, and certainly not NYC.
