Summary Author: Cindy Todd
Coming out of the tunnel to the entrance of Yosemite National Park offers one of the most magical views in North America. It's a jaw-dropping experience; the granodiorite monoliths of Half Dome is in the distance and El Capitan is on your left, Bridalveil Fall (617 ft high or 188 m) is on your right, and a dark green coniferous carpet below you frames it all. Approximately 6,000 park visitors each day, during the April-October tourist season, drive through the tunnel to the magnificent scenic overlook. Photo taken on May 19, 2012.
