Been There, Done That, Did Again

The "Tunnel View" provides one of the most famous views of Yosemite Valley. It is also one of the most photographed locations in the park. This viewpoint is located at the east end of Wawona Tunnel along Wawona Road (Highway 41). From here you can see many of Yosemite's most recognizable features. I rarely take photos from here due to my aversion to being elbow-to-elbow with other photographers.

 

If you're ever at this location, look around. If you see a guy away from the rest of the pack and your first thought is, "What's he doing?", it's probably me.

 

From left to right - El Capitan, Half Dome, Cathedral Spires, Sentinel Dome, Cathedral Rocks, Bridalveil Falls and Leaning Tower.
