Sentinel Dome Viewpoint
|Photo by Dan Czyz|
Half Dome tops the eastern edge of Yosemite Valley, and is one of the most recognizable features of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Just to the northeast (left) is Cloud's Rest, the highest point of this section of the Yosemite peaks, at 9,926 feet. Half Dome may be the youngest geological formation in the park, made up of
granodiorite, an abundant igneous rock.
