Photographer's Note

"Yosemite Park is a place of rest, a reguge from the roar and dust and weary, nervous, wasting work of the lowlands, in which one gains the advantages of both solitude and society. Nowhere will you find more company of a soothing peace-be-still kind. Your animal fellow beings, so seldom regarded in civilization, and every rock-brow and mountain, stream, and lake, and every plant soon cometo be regarded as brothers; even one learns to like the storms and clouds and tireless winds. This one noble park is big enough and rich enough for a whole life of study and aesthetic enjoyment. It is good for everybody, no matter how benumbed with care, encrusted with a mail of business habits like a tree with bark. None can escape its charms.
Its natural beauty cleans and warms like a fire, and you will be willing to stay forever in one place like a tree."
--- JOHN MUIR

This view of Yosemite National Park's surrounding mountains above the Valley is from the most popular stop from the west entrance - Tunnel View.
