  • Half Dome is a granite dome in Yosemite National Park, located in northeastern Mariposa County, California, at the eastern end of Yosemite Valley — possibly Yosemite's most familiar rock formation. The granite crest rises more than 4,737 ft (1,444 m) above the valley floor.
  • Bridalveil Fall is one of the most prominent waterfalls in the Yosemite Valley. Bridalveil Fall is 188 meters (617 ft) and flows year round.
  • El Capitan is a 3,000-foot (910 m) vertical rock formation on the north side of Yosemite Valley, near its western end. The granite monolith is one of the world's favorite challenges for rock climbers. The formation was named "El Capitan" by the Mariposa Battalion when it explored the valley in 1851.

Yosemite Valley - Tunnel View

Newer Older

Tunnel View, within Yosemite National Park, is a viewpoint on State Route 41 located directly east of the Wawona Tunnel as one enters Yosemite Valley from the South. The view looks east into Yosemite Valley including the southwest face of El Capitan, Half Dome, and Bridalveil Falls. This is, to many, the first views of the popular attractions in Yosemite. Many cars stop right outside of the tunnel to take pictures and absorb the visual aesthetics.
