These national parks can really get under your skin….no matter how far you travel, when you drive through the gate, you KNOW why you came….
With 10 miles to go before we would land on the Valley floor and traverse to the far end with Half Dome, this Tunnel View shows the length and breadth of Yosemite National Park. What a treasure!
HA, that’s not the half of it!
This view from Glacier Point features Half Dome….and provides little understanding of the distances involved. Here’s a clue: standing in the same spot, I photographed two people standing on Half Dome….
The place is massive, and the views spectacular. The following photo is from an overlook whose placard describes being able to see 190 miles on a clear day!
Of course, the up-close views aren’t too bad!
