I've been in Yosemite on vacation this week. Thursday we drove around the Valley and I spent some time walking around and taking photos. Here are some of my favorites from the day trip.

Tunnel View

This is always a stunning view. It was especially clear on the way down to the valley. You can see a control burn in progress.

This shadow of a tree on a very calm Merced river was a great find on one of my walks.

Merced River in the Valley

El Capitan is a force of nature. It is almost impossible to put into words how big this granite wall is.

Bridalveil Falls

The scenery around Yosemite Valley is always impressive. I enjoy all the time that I spend in my favorite National Park.
