Photograph of a view of Bridal Veil Falls from the valley floor of the Yosemite Valley, Yosemite National Park, California, ca.1930. White mists of water consume the lower half of the fall. Several large rocks lay in the river (or creek?). Trees and bushes cover the valley floor in the foreground.; "Yosemite Valley is the heart of Yosemite National Park. The Valley is set deep in a canyon flanked by high cliffs. El Capitan, Half Dome, Bridal Veil Falls and Yosemite Falls are all viewable from the valley floor. There are many backcountry trailheads here suitable for week-long trips or day hikes. Often called 'the Incomparable Valley,' Yosemite Valley may be the world's best-known example of a glacial carved canyon. The dramatic scale of its leaping water falls, rounded domes, massive monoliths, and towering cliffs has inspired painters, poets, photographers and millions of visitors." -- unknown author.
