El Capitan. There were climbers on the left hand side we could see through our binoculars. The were tiny, invisible to the naked eye. These pictures are great, but like most, it's just not like being there.

One of the less explored areas of Yosemite National Park. The Hetch Hetchy (that's right) Valley made a likely candidate for a dam and reservoir after the 1906 San Francisco fire. Even though it was a National Park at the time and the naturalists fought it, they built the O'Shaughnessy Dam to form the Hetch Hetchy reservoir. It provides 85% of San Francisco's drinking water.
