Half Dome at Sunset

Tammy M. Anderson level-deluxe 10/5/2010 9:55:36 AM

Hi Terry. Excellent capture of this beautiful location. Great light and colors. Was this taken from Glacier Point? After we spent three days at Sequoia we went on to YNP and spent 6 days there. We were there from June 9-14. Too bad we didn't know we were there at the same time. My favorite thing was the hike to Nevada Falls. #1314804
