At the Valley View looking back into the valley, on the left hand side is the giant boulder of "El Captan", which we have shown previously.
At the right hand side we can see the "Cathedral Rocks" with the "Bridalveil Fall" barely visible in the distance.
"Tunnel View" has nothing to do with the tunnel vision. It is on the Route 41 just east of Wawona Tunnel. It looks down into the Yosemite Valley. Whenever we see a mountain scene covered with misty clouds, we often say that it looks like a Chinese painting. The view of Cathedral Rocks and Bridalveil Fall from the Tunnel View indeed looks like a Chinese brush painting.
We were down at the valley when we saw the clouds broke, we had to rush up to the Tunnel View and just in time to have a few minutes of the magnificent view of the valley.
The clouds moved very fast with light changing every minute. A few minutes after we arrived, the whole valley was covered with clouds again. However, we appreciate that the clouds make the view much more dramatic than it would be on a bright sunny day.
We supposed to be able to see the Half Dome in the distance, but we would have to wait till the next day at the Glacial Point where we had a view of the famous rock up close during the sunset. You can see the pictures here in our previous blog.
