Half Dome, Yosemite National Park
One of the most famous peaks around Yosemite Valley is Half Dome which soars 8,842 feet, a full 4,733 feet above the valley floor. This giant block of cracked grey granite looks like a dome whose side has been sheared away. It has been called the greatest monolith on earth.
