Yosemite National Park, California 2008 -- Tuesday morning we ventured to Yosemite Valley -- an incredible place where granite monoliths line the Merced River valley. After emerging from a tunnel, tourists are presented with the "Gates of Yosemite" view including El Capitan on the left, Half Dome at the center in the distance, and Bridalveil Falls at center. Up to ten different glaciers scooped out this valley in a U shape; the last finishing up 15,000-20,000 years ago.
