Seeing this monumental piece of granite from the road while driving in is awe inspiring, a definite picture moment to go back to time and again when recollecting the trip.

Its hard to describe El Capitan, until you stand below it and appreciate its spectacular enormity (it helps even more when someone points out the tiny specs you can see are climbers) The whole thing is a must to see

Take a few moments to enjoy the wonder of El Capitan. The vastness. It's face. When you look at El Capitan against a clear blue sky, it's a magnificent view. Just use one of the pull outs to take pictures and/or enjoy this beauty.

Wonderful view. Photos do not do it justice. Watching water cascading off of it just makes it breathtaking. Can be seen from many areas of the park.
