Location, Location, Location – Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 289

Vernal and Nevada Falls viewed from Glacier Point

Where things are located – Yosemite Valley

What is interesting about hiking among the mountains of any national park is the difference in orientation and perspective between ground level and the top of the peaks.

Above is a view of part of Yosemite Valley. Off to the right, almost in the bottom of the frame, is the Majestic Yosemite Hotel (A), Yosemite Falls (B) is easy to see and pick out near the top middle of the shot. The green area (C) is the meadow where I took several very good photographs of Half Dome during the early evening hours (a long lens will help).

Just below the falls and a bit to the right are the stores and some amenities (D).

In the approximate vicinity of the arrow is where we stayed and where the Yosemite Valley Lodge and amenities are located.

We walked it all and enjoyed every minute of it. The Valley Loop trail will take you to most of the places named above and I recommend it, but do purchase a good map as we found the signage somewhat confusing
