The Three Brothers – Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 298

Three Brothers and Bridalveil Falls from Tunnel View

Three Brothers from Tunnel View

It has been reported that John Muir thought The Three Brothers provided one of the most spectacular views of Yosemite Valley. The photograph above was taken from Tunnel View where the entire valley opens before onlookers.

The highest or uppermost brother is Eagle Peak. Then there is the Middle Brother and the Lower Brother. Bridalveil Falls was flowing well this spring.

Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 43 (Bridalveil Falls)

Across the “way” from El Capitan is another beautiful feature, Bridalveil Falls. If you look at the map below, you can see that they are almost directly opposite one another and while it looks like quite a distance on the map, from the road, they are relatively close. Parking can be tight at this location because visitors stop to take photographs of both iconic scenes.

On the map above, El Capitan and Bridalveil Falls are circled with an arrow pointing to each.
