Yosemite National Park, California
El Capitan is a vertical rock formation in Yosemite National Park, located on the north side of Yosemite Valley, near its western end. The granite monolith is about 3,000 feet from base to summit along its tallest face.
We could hear and barely see rock climbers as we hiked along a river near El Capitan one morning. The morning light highlighted one side of the rock while the other was still in shadow and the open field provided a nice foundation for this artistic rendering.
