Interesting Facts & Highlights

Yosemite

An Indian name was once given as Mah' -ta, meaning 'Martyr Mountain'. However, several other names were used over the years (Mt. Frances, Gwin's Peak, Bellows' Butte and others) until Governor Stanford in 1865 suggested a more appropriate name after producing an old-fashioned half dollar with an embossed Liberty Cap. The actual name was sealed on the Lt. McClure map of 1869.

Taken from Mist Trail next to Nevada Falls.
