That's My World Tuesday / Valley View, Yosemite National Park, California USA

Click on photos to enlarge!
I can never get enough of this valley.
There are limitless numbers of places to view and photograph it.
You can see El Capitan on the left, Bridalveil Falls and Cathedral Rocks on the right as well as Sentinel Rock in the distance on the right.
The Merced River is in the forefront.

 This is a closer view of Cathedral Rocks towering above Bridalveil Falls.
The Merced River is in the forefront capturing glorious golden reflections.


This is a closer view of Sentinel Rock shock earlier in the day.

A closer view of Sentinel Rock.
This massive granite monolith towers above several campgrounds.
If you want to feel really small...camp here!

I am a fan of signs...

I can't get enough of that valley either and I've never even been there. I feel like I do get to vicariously visit through your outstanding shots. That's one of my favorite parts of blogging.

Your've got me counting down, four weeks until we're there. Hubby is already asking when we can make reservations for fall.

These are stunning pictures. Yosemite is high on my list of places to visit, but this year it's going to be Yellowstone.

Great pictures. I really liked the one with Capitan in the sun, across the river with the woods in the Shadows.

A great place to visit, now I'm itching to come here for a visit, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. But first need to check on the cost of airplane, Singapore is too far away from the USA! At least I get to enjoy the view without ever leaving my home, thanks to you! :)
