    Yosemite is one of my favorite national park. The meadows, grand waterfalls and granite cliffs keep amazed me for coming back. My most visits were staying in the valley floor and exploring around the park. The most adventurous trip was hiking Half Dome 4 years ago and got to witness the high mountains and peaks from the top. Last weekend, I made it another visit, but just for a couple short hikes and to drive up to Glacier Point to see the grand views from the top. I brought along my EM5 with P12-35/2.8 and EM1 with PL100-400.

    On the way to Glacier Point, we stopped for a short hike to Sentinel Dome.

    Great pics. It's 25 years since I hiked up to Glacier Point (I live in the UK) and I remember staring at the awesome view for hours! One of the shots I took on an old Pentax ME Super has hung on my wall ever since, and I'm definitely coming back soon.

    Thank you! I'm having a hard time which one to hang on my wall. Surely it's worth for a revisit.

    oooo
    I got to get back there while I can still get around.
    My days of hard long hikes are over, but I can still walk.
