Olmsted Point and What Else? – Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 241

What is out there?

The Olmsted Point parking area is relatively large for its location and there was quite a crowd when we stopped to take in the scene. Moving around the area, there were many striking views.

In the picture above, this mountain covered with trees and very pretty rock formations was worthy in its own right. I wondered how many people might stop off here and not realize that lurking in the distance is perhaps the most famous Yosemite feature, Half Dome.

Among so many beautiful areas to stop and appreciate nature’s beauty at Yosemite National Park, the best sighting may not be obvious to visitors.
