Tunnel View

Wawona Tunnel, a tunnel blasted straight through the mountain in the 1930’s leads to the famous Tunnel View, probably the most photographed Yosemite location. From here you see El Capitan, Bridalveil Falls and Half Dome. This view makes all the roads and buildings in the valley invisible and you just enjoy the natural splendor.

The expansive Tunnel View of Yosemite Valley has been seen by visitors since it opened in 1933. This view is very popular with artists and photographers.
