Yosemite National Park
The Welcome Page can be slow to load so some people may have missed the Glacier Point comparisons. Access to the Point was available when this picture was taken in 1898 but it takes PhotoShop to be in the picture now.
One step and it is a mile down to Yosemite Valley. These 3-D images are from 1893-1904 (click to enlarge).
Prior to shipping out, soldiers gather at Glacier Point overlooking Half Dome.
This is one of the largest Sequoias in Mariposa Grove, and it is estimated to be 1800 years old. Galen Clark was the first to count the trees and became their guardian for fifty years. He is seen in front of the Grizzly Giant in an undated postcard shortly before his death in 1909.
The Wawona Hotel opened in 1879 and is located just north of the Maripossa Grove at the south entrance to Yosemite. The photo was taken by William Henry Jackson in 1898.
