I wanted to visit Yosemite Valley for one reason; Half Dome. Half Dome, pictured above, is a granite slice of pie cut to serve by glacier. Yosemite Valley contains world class waterfalls, massive towering structures of rock such as El Capitan, redwoods, meadows, wildlife, and a roaring river competing with boulders the size of apartment buildings. People visit Yosemite from around the world to live for a bit in nature’s majesty. I visited Yosemite because I have a crush on Half Dome. My eyes and heart feasted on HD’s supple yet elegant shape, pictures were taken and it was time to head out and up and around Yosemite Valley via Rt. 120, towards and along Tioga Pass; upwards to @ 10,000 ft and out the other side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the western side of Mono Lake.
