Yosemite: First view

First view of Yosemite Valley

We're going to take a side trip for a few days, to Yosemite National Park, one of the most beautiful parks in the country.

Yosemite is located in the center of California, about a 6-hour drive from Downey. The first view that you get of Yosemite Valley comes as you exit a long tunnel on the drive in. The site above is what greets you, and it is a spectacular view, of Bridal Veil Falls on the far right, and Half Dome in the distance.

We arrived just as the sun was setting, and had time for only a couple of quick shots before the light was gone. More tomorrow...
