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 - # 046 !
ROADS IN AND OUT OF YOSEMITE VALLEY !
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!

At first sight of this wonderful landscape picture I'd never think that different roads run through it.
This landscape looks untouched and even difficult to penetrate.
Fantastic clear and sharply taken scenery.
Best regards, Paul

Magnifique point de vue sur cette vallée encadrée par de hautes montagnes. Les couleurs sont magnifiques et la netteté excellente. Bien fait.

Superb mountains landscape photo in excellent light & clarity. You have taken it from very good viewpoint; excellent deep DOF allows to see all the nice details up to the mountains and nice sky in BG.

Wonderful landscape with great clarity and lovely natural colours. The DOF with the far away mountains outlined against the clear blue sky is excellent. Thanks for sharing

Une vue superbe de ce paysage de montagne où la végétation se mêle à la roche locale pour offrir un spectacle de toute beauté. La rivière sinueuse qui traverse les falaises verdoyantes entraîne le regard vers les reliefs de l'arrière-plan qui ferment l'image. Le ciel bleu agrémenté de nuages ajoute une touche lumineuse à ce cadre magnifique. C'est très beau !

Your title made me look for roads and indeed there's some glimpses visible. Astonishing high viewpoint showing that deep valley and mountains on the background. It looks very untouched, even though I can imagine this park gets quite a lot of visitors.

Have a nice evening.

You have so many lovely images of Yosemite. This one shows the grandeur of the valley and the sheer cliffs where the trees cannot cling to. Very well produced image with excellent sharpness and exposure.
Kind Regards, Ann
