El Capitan from the Yosemite Valley Floor
The Story: El Capitan serves as a Yosemite National Park icon as it stands 3,000 over the El Capitan Meadow at its base. The granite feature was formed 100 million years ago due to an intrusion of igneous rock. It gained its present shape following glaciers that carved the region about 1 million years ago. As native Americans populated Yosemite Valley, they called the mountain, Tutokanula. On this perfect June day, the granite face contrasts with the blue California sky as the Merced River reflects the surrounding trees.
