ExhibitPlus Yosemite Valley Tunnel View Panorama
When I arrived at Yosemite, all excited, I -- had to turn around and leave the park to get gas, because the only gas station in the area of the park I was visiting was shut down for repairs. :) When I returned, my first destination was Glacier Point, reached at the end of a remarkable highway that winds its way through the southwestern part of the park. To get to Glacier Point from Yosemite Valley, you pass through a famous tunnel, at the end of which is an even more famous view of the Yosemite Valley: the aptly-named Tunnel View.

As I pulled into the parking lot along the road to take in this view, I knew I was in for something special, but that did not prepare for the sheer grandeur, the incredible beauty and awesome scale that is the Yosemite Valley. I literally stood there for several minutes, transfixed at the view; it quite honestly doesn't seem like it can be real. The photograph won't give you this feeling; you have to visit for yourself.
