Paris has sa tour Eiffel, Berlin has the Brandenburger Tor and Yosemite National Park has the Half Dome. And just like in Paris and Berlin, there is more to see in Yosemite.
Honestly, my very first impression of Yosemite was one of disappointment. I was in for wild, untouched nature but there were crowds of people, souvenir shops and paved roads. The busiest pedestrian highways led to those points with a prime view of the Half Dome and it was there where all the crowds gathered for sunset – us included! The first picture in the gallery is the shot everyone wants to get. But there is more to explore, and today, I want to share a few impressions from the park. The last picture is somewhere near Cathedral Lake, my favorite part in that little area that we were able to explore.
Have you been to Yosemite? What was your favorite spot?
Time of visit: August 2010
