Caption

The Yosemite Valley is a mighty canyon in the Sierra, seven miles long and a half mile wide, with perpendicular walls of granite. The floor of the valley is a beautiful meadow, through which flows the sparkling Merced River. Into the valley falls the loftiest cataract in the world. Yosemite Falls, 2,325 feet. Bridal Veil Falls, noted for its beauty, has a sheer drop of 620 feet. Nevada Falls, 594 feet and Vernal, a solid sheet of crystal water 80 feet wide at the crest, drops 317 feet. With its vivid green setting glistening in perpetual spray, it is considered California's most beautiful cataract.
