Interesting Facts & Highlights

Yosemite

Natives called this To-to-kon-oo-lah for the Sandhill Crane, a chief of the first people. However the naming appears to more of a Spanish interpretation of To-tock-ah-noo-lah meaning 'Rock Chief'. Other legends say that Tul-tok-a-nu-la is a measuring worm that inched up the face of the rock to save two stranded boys that were out of reach of the other magical creature in the valley.

Modern big wall climbing was refined here and climbers form all around the world venture here every year. With 70 big wall routes, El Cap rises 3300 ft from the talus slopes up to the valley rim.
