  Yosemite Valley from Tunnel View viewpoint
by JanPeter74

Yosemite Valley is a rather compact area, that can be seen as the heart of Yosemite National Park. Without putting the rest of Yosemite behind, this is the part of the park where the "main attractions" can be found; either in the valley or close to the valley. Pay attention that the road into the valley is a one-way ring road.

In the picture you see Yosemite Valley from the viewpoint at "Tunnel View". The steep rock to the left is "El Capitan" and in the back you can see "Half Dome".
