Location: Yosemite National Park, CA
Yosemite Valley is renowned for its spectacular cliffs and biodiversity. The dramatic changes in altitude caused by cliffs or gradual altitude changes caused by slopes of Sierra Nevada ranges are a scene to behold. A view from the top of Yosemite Valley gives a glimpse into both the flora and terrain in a unique way. You get a clear picture of the sharp thousand feet cliff surfaces and the gradual recession of vegetation. The most memorable aspect is the pinnacle of granitic domes that form jagged silhouette protrusions towering into the clouds.
