Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 117 (The Majestic Yosemite Hotel from Above)

Majestic Yosemite Hotel from aboveThe Majestic Yosemite Hotel as seen from near Glacier Point

It is difficult to appreciate the size and scope of The Majestic Yosemite Hotel and the grounds when you are actually at the former Ahwahnee. The picture shows this structure in the center part of the photo just to the right of the dead tree in the area between the pines. When standing on the grounds, the abundant number of trees tend to partially block the view so seeing the resort from a distance provides more perspective.
