Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 161 (Sentinel Dome – A View of Yosemite Falls)

Yosemite Falls viewed from the top of Sentinel Dome

Yosemite Falls viewed from the top of Sentinel Dome

It felt like I was standing on top of the world. Obviously I knew intellectually there were many places that were higher, but when walking across the top of Sentinel Dome, which was quite wide, it seemed as though I could see most of Yosemite’s major sights.

The picture above is a distant view of Yosemite Falls. Because of the height of the dome and the distance, a larger portion of Yosemite Falls is visible and it was splendid. The torrents of water spread out as they fell into the basin and then traveled down the crevice into the rest of the valley.
