Valley View Point - Yosemite National Park Featured 13 Sep 2016 Print

Valley View Point - Yosemite National Park

Yosemite Valley is a glacial valley in Yosemite National Park in the western Sierra Nevada mountains of Northern California. The valley is about 8 miles (13 km) long and up to a mile deep, surrounded by high granite summits such as Half Dome and El Capitan, and densely forested with pines. The valley is drained by the Merced River and a multitude of streams and waterfalls including Tenaya, Illilouette, Yosemite and Bridalveil Creeks. Yosemite Falls is the highest waterfall in North America, and is a big attraction especially in the spring when the water flow is at its peak. The valley is renowned for its natural beauty, and is widely regarded as the centerpiece of Yosemite National Park, attracting visitors from around the world.
The Valley is the main attraction in the park for the majority of visitors, and a bustling hub of activity during tourist season in the summer months. On July 2, 2011 there was a record 20, 851 visitors to the valley.
Most visitors enter the valley from roads to the west and pass through the famous Tunnel View entrance. Visitor facilities are located in the center of the valley. There are both hiking trail loops that stay within the valley and trailheads that lead to higher elevations, all of which afford glimpses of the park's many scenic wonders.
As you leave Yosemite Valley, perhaps for a day trip down to the Mariposa Grove of giant sequoias near Wawona or a scenic drive up to Glacier Point or Tioga Pass, be sure to stop off at this roadside lookout. Here youa??ll see a beautiful portrait of the Merced River (something thata??s missing from earlier Tunnel View), flanked by massive El Capitan on the left and the skyscraping twin Cathedral Rocks and Spires. Look for this viewpoint along one-way Northside Drive, before the Pohono Bridge

Yosemite Valley Viewpoint

The natural beauty of Yosemite is so incredible that it inspired an entire 19th-century conservation movement, which resulted in the valleya??s protection as a national park in 1890. Naturalists led by John Muir and artists like photographer Ansel Adams found inspiration for their life's work here. First-time visitors to Yosemite National Park won't want to miss any of the following heart-stopping vistas, all easily accessible from paved roads throughout the park. As you leave Yosemite Valley, perhaps for a day trip down to the Mariposa Grove of giant sequoias near Wawona or a scenic drive up to Glacier Point or Tioga Pass, be sure to stop off at this roadside lookout.

Oil rig on the move JLP01_10_01584_6

Graythorp Dry Dock, Hartlepool. The Graythorp basin flooded and the dock gates removed for float out of oil platform. The Laing Offshore Graythorp project involved the development of the former shipyard at Graythorp dock to form an oil platform construction base. Permanent dock gates were constructed consisting of hollow rectangular concrete caissons resting on a sill between two sets of sand filled cofferdams. Photographed in June 1974
