Tunnel View...

EXPLORE: May 17, 2011
As a first time visitor to Yosemite National Park, little did I know that stopping at the tunnel view is an essential part of any Yosemite trip.

I did not realize until we got home that this is one of the most heavily photographed areas in the park. We were able get a great view of (L to R) El Capitan, Clouds Rest, Half Dome, Sentinel Rock, Sentinel Dome, Cathedral Rocks, and Bridalveil Fall. Although the valley appeared to be all trees, we discovered otherwise once we did our drive through. There are meadows and the Merced River is also down there. I have seen so many beautiful photos of this area on Flickr. It is all about the light which appeared to be changing every few moments. We did not have the best light as our timing was not the best, but did manage to have a clear day. Hope you enjoy.
