Interesting Facts & Highlights

Yosemite

Known as Ham-mo, meaning lost arrow, it marks the place of a pretend loss of an arrow that lead to the death of Ten-ie-ya's son, according to Indian legend. Has also been identified as "Devil's Thumb"and Giant's Thumb." Geologically this spire was formed from the scaling off of large rock sheets largely as a result of the destructive action of the spray from the falls that freezes in winter. The spire itself has a total height of about 1500 ft.
