While looking through photo albums a couple of days ago, I came across pictures from our trip to Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Park (California) in July, 1990. The area is breathtakingly beautiful, so I decided to scan a few Yosemite photos and share with you. These pictures were taken with a 35mm film camera. (FYI: The park will celebrate its 125th anniversary on October 1, 2015.)
|Rising more than 3,000 feet above the |
valley floor, El Capitan is the largest
monolith of granite in the world.
|Half Dome is perhaps the most recognized|
symbol of Yosemite, rising nearly 5,000 feet
above the valley floor.
|Here's another view of Half Dome,|
taken from the valley floor.
|Yosemite Falls (2,425 ft) flows approximately from|
November through July. Since we were there in July,
the water flow was lighter but still impressive.
|At the base of the lower portion|
of Yosemite Falls, just one of many
beautiful waterfalls in the park.
You should be able to zoom in and out on this map.
