El Cap





Snow covered El Cap and a waterfall(to the left - in shadow). This waterfall is the 2nd largest in the WORLD(after Angel Falls). Perspective: look how small the trees look ...and they are huge. It takes experienced climbers 3 days(good weather) to climb El Cap.

This is Yosemite Falls. Consists of Upper Falls & Lower Falls with a cascade in between. You can see a rainbow(now) starting in the middle. Rainbow will elevate incrementally in the next pictures.
