Series on my trip to the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA) - NORTH AMERICA - Visiting northern CALIFORNIA, with SAN FRANCISCO, YOSEMITE, SEQUOIA and KINGS NATIONAL PARKS, MONO LAKE, MAMMOTH LAKES, SAN LUIS OBISPO, MORRO BAY, BIG SUR, MONTEREY, CARMEL, the NAPA VALLEY, SACRAMENTO and LAKE TAHOE - From June 21st to July 9th, 2013 - # 047 !





ROADS IN AND OUT OF YOSEMITE VALLEY !
TUNNEL, (MERCED) RIVER & FALLS (BRIDAL VEIL FALLS) !

Highlighted here one of the tunnels of one of the roads to get in the Valley, one of the falls (BRIDAL VEIL FALLS) and the MERCED RIVER.
It was summer! One has to book a stay in the park with some good time in advance and it's not cheap! So I stayed outside the park, in MAMMOTH LAKES. Not too far, not that close! A one hour and a half or even two hour drive, in this case, driving along the margins of MONO LAKE, across the TIOGA PASS and entering the park through its northeastern entrance and enjoying the beauties of the TUOLUMNE MEADOWS, LAKE TENAYA and OLMSTED POINT, among others, for example.
So I took this picture in a place where one can see and have an idea of how one can get in and out of YOSEMITE VALLEY! There are two roads on the left, one of them is pretty close to the river (EL PORTAL ROAD - HIGHWAY 140 - EASTERN ENTRANCE OF THE PARK), down there, and another one a bit higher (BIG OAK FLAT & TIOGA ROADS - HIGHWAY 120 - NORTHEASTERN AND NORTHWESTERN ENTRANCES OF THE PARK)! There is another road on the right (WAWONA ROAD - HIGHWAY 41 - GLACIER POINT - MARIPOSA GROVE), up in the mountains too, in and out of the valley, towards the southwestern entrance of the park! In the distance, one can see the Bridal Veil and start enjoying or missing all the beauty of that Valley!
