#DYK One of the most famous trees in @yosemitenps is actually dead! The tree picture is known as the “dead tunnel tree”, and it’s located on the Tuolumne Grove trail. The trail itself will find you largely hiking downhill (a major plus!), and you will be able to walk through the famous tree. You’ll also be treated to a showing of alive Giant Sequoias too! This is a hike that’s not to be missed. 🌲🚶🏽🌲
My home away from home. There is no place I look forward to visiting than #yosemitenationalpark - everything from the river to hiking, the trees and mountains! Only 365 more days until I get to come back!
Stoneman Bridge, Spanning Merced River on Stoneman Crossover Road, Yosemite Village, Mariposa County, CA
The Stoneman Bridge (1933) resembles the Clark and Happy Isles bridges, with a 72-foot (22 m) main span carrying a 27-foot (8.2 m) road and two 6-foot (1.8 m) sidewalks. The equestrian subways in the abutments were slightly enlarged in width to 8.5 feet (2.6 m) and were extended out from the surface of the wing walls for greater emphasis. It is located at the Camp Curry intersection. Cost was $71,675.08. The bridge replaced a wooden bridge that had carried the former "Royal Arch Avenue" to the Stoneman Hotel, which had been demolished by the 1920s. Construction on the bridge was started by Sullivan and Sullivan of Oakland, California, but was terminated when the Bureau of Public Roads lost confidence in the contractor's ability to carry out the work. The bridge was completed by the Portland, Oregon firm of Kueckenberg & Wittman.

This is pretty amazing. (📸@gregharlowmedia) ••• Yosemite Falls Rainbow Time Lapse. A special set of circumstances created a rare and previously undocumented 2,400’ full spectrum rainbow at Yosemite National Park, California.🌎
Another angle of Yosemite Falls from the top of Sentinel Dome. If you know what you're looking for, the upper part of the Yosemite Falls trail is visible here too. (Hint: the zig-zag path to the left of the falls).
I don’t like this photo. But, the memory that goes along with it is what is special. This was at mile 12 of 16.5 that Jacob and I did that day. We had a couple @clifbar and packs of trail mix, and we were gone for 12 hours. We met a super cool recent college grad named Dylan, and we hiked with him for a solid chunk of the day. We went to the top of Nevada falls, across the panorama trail, to glacier point then down the 4 mile trail back to the valley floor. I couldn’t the next day, and I felt absolutely terrible, but all I could think about was the awesome conversations we had and being surrounded by these massive granite walls. The sunset was underwhelming, the haze made it very hard to capture a good photo, but it was a hike I’ll never forget. Can any of you relate or have an experience like this? Share below!
Incredibly proud of @maryeuline for getting accepted into her nursing program. She’s been working so hard and has been making sacrifices to accomplish her goals. There’s no doubt in my mind that she’ll conquer this next stage in her life. I love you Mary. Glad I have someone who inspires me to be better every day
