Half Dome and Tenaya Canyon below Glacier Point. It's wild to see Half-Dome as a small rock on the horizon from Tunnel View then see it imposing itself on Yosemite Valley. The photos never show the real magnitude of nature.

Another obligatory shot while in Yosemite. El Capitan & Half Dome. Should have better sunset shots coming up when I have time to edit, but for now, the hazy daylight edition.
El Capitan & Half-Dome get all the publicity, but i paid a lot of attention to Cathedral Rocks on this trip. Bridal veil Fall in Yosemite is 617 feet, dwarfed by the granite outcropping.
Valley View provides a clear line of sight between El Capitan & Cathedral Rocks. Merced River in the foreground. Not particularly a great shot, but it reminds me of standing there. Good enough for today.
After leaving Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks we headed north for Yosemite. Late afternoon sun on the valley floor. The color image in the gallery is from two days later but features both upper & lower falls.
Eagle View on the High Sierra Trail. Quick 1.5 mile hike from the trailhead. Nice section of Sequoia National Park around the Parker Trees, Crescent Meadow and the drive through tunnel log. Easy place to spend a few hours.
Last photo from the Kings Canyon Scenic Byway. Really enjoyed my time on the road and in this section of the park. If i have more time I'll post additional images from Knapps Cabin and other locations I haven't had time to work on.
