I stopped the rental car pretty fast seeing El Captain in person for the first time. It was early in the morning, the light was not great but the scene still amazingly beautiful.
After seeing so many stunning photographs of Yosemite by Ansel Adams, Mark Klett, Eadweard Muybridge, Carleton Watkins, and everyone else I’m forgetting at the moment–being there, I get it. Yosemite is a magical, wondrous place. Photos do not due it justice.
