Yosemite – the Valley

Yosemite – the Valley

After all the Ansel Adams photography, it seemed strange to see this gem of a national park in colour. Temperatures hit the high 80s as we cycled and walked around the Yosemite Valley.

It’s spelllbindingly attractive, but don’t come here if you want to get away from people. And photography is a lot harder than it should be due to the number of cars parked everywhere.

Perhaps the best way to see the Valley is from Tunnel View, see image below – El Capitan is on the left, Bridalveil Falls on the right with Half-Dome far away in the distance.


If you plan to do this Even on a Monday, we were surprised how busy the Valley was. Unable to book accommodation inside the park, we stayed an hour away from the entrance, and had to get up early to secure convenient parking places. Cycles helped us get around the Valley quicker.
