For many first time tourists to Yosemite Valley, their first view of the valley is much like that of the Maiposa Battalion, who in 1851 were the first non-natives to see and publicize the existence of these wonders. Tourists have visited the valley in ever increasing numbers ever since.

Visitors entering Yosemite National Park on Highway 41 have quite a drive from the south entrance gate. The winding road goes for 27 miles and after 45 minutes of driving you come around a broad corner under Turtleback Dome and get your first view of El Capitan and Half Dome just before you plunge into a long tunnel. As you approach the end of this tunnel slow down. At the exit you’ll want to put to the left or right into the parking lots and walk to the railing to absorb this spectacular view.

    Wow, this is very impressive. I believe it is the largest single Yosemitee Gigapan to date, and very well done technically!
