Yosemite National Park, June 28, 2012


Today we took the Grand tour of the Yosemite Park. I was so happy I did not have to drive! First we headed to Maripoza, to see the giant sequoias. Then - to Glacier Point, 7 thousand feet above sea level, to feast our eyes on the Yosemite valley and the famous Half Dome Rock. Standing there, by the precipice,  you get an illusion of flight - and a feeling that you could embrace this whole valley with its waterfalls and endless forests, grey rocks polished by glaciers, and clear clean streams at the bottom.

Later we descended to the bottom of the canyon and admired the majesty of the Yosemite Fall and the Bridal Veil Fall. The Yosemite fall is the tallest - the water falls from the height of 2 thousand feet. In the end of June it was already shrinking, only to dry out in the middle of July. But the Bridal Veil never dries; it was ripped by the wind and tinted by the setting sun. At 4:30 P.M. one can see the  rainbow in its waters.
