The Hetch Hetchy Valley was by all accounts very beautiful before it was flooded to make the reservoir. There has been talk about removing the dam and reservoir ( not in that order!) in order to eventually return that valley to its splendor. This idea even surfaced in the late 80's as it was proposed by the then Secretary of the Interior, whose name escapes me (James Watt???).

Very nice pictures of your trip. I was just at Yosemite during the spring and stayed at the Upper pines campground, and also hiked up to Vernal and Nevada falls via the mist trail. We went on a cold overcast day and the stairs were super wet and slippery, but it was worth it. Sadly several people go over the falls each year including this year, seems nuts to swim at the top of a waterfall but people do it.

Nice pictures Mike. Yosemite is one of my favorite places on earth. Your pictures certainly make me think about planning a trip there in the near future.

Awesome and inspiring photos. Was a nice break from looking out the window at the rain and gloom but badly needed rain in central KS. I want to go!

IMO the view from Glacier Point is the most spectacular sight I've ever seen, bar none. Other people will have other"most spectacular" sights.

I wonder if there ever was a glacier readily viewable from Glacier Point, perhaps a few decades ago? No idea. I had to use the telescope to see any snow at all, and it was only a little bit on the highest peaks perhaps 15 or 20 miles away. Oh well, without doubt the area was sculpted by glaciers long ago.
