PHOTO ESSAY: More from Yosemite

It's hard to take a bad shot in Yosemite and it's also hard to cull pictures for our article. There's just so much to choose from. Here are some leftover shots from our recent trip to one of the most beautiful spots on Earth.

Yosemite is about more than just high cliffs and waterfalls. There are also thousands of trees. In fact, there are some great groves of Giant Sequoias here too. Here is one of the trees on the valley floor.

Tim and I take in the view on a bridge over the Merced River.

Even though the weather was warm, it was still winter. You can see some snow in the upper reaches of the mountains surrounding the valley, like these next to Taft Point.

While Yosemite Falls is featured heavily in our report and video, Yosemite has many other spectacular falls too. Here is Bridalveil Falls on the western end of the valley.

This relief map shows the layout of Yosemite Valley.

I'm taking a break from filming for a picture and then to take in the incredible view.

Entering the park from the west, coming in from Mariposa, you need to drive through this tight, little hole in the rocks.

Letty takes some time to take in the scenery at Tunnel View.

And we'll end with another reminder that it was still winter when we were there, a giant frozen waterfall.
