El Capitan’s Nose from Taft Point – Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 226

El Capitan from Taft Trail

Yesterday’s post showed a more distant picture of El Capitan with the surrounding meadows and the Merced River. This photo brings viewers a bit closer to El Capitan and the “nose” of the mountain.

The nose is the ridge facing left that juts out like a nose on a face. I guess mountains do have faces…don’t they?
