The Unplanned Effect

Ahwahnee Bridge and the Merced River, Yosemite Valley

This beautiful three-arch stone bridge was built across the Merced River in 1928. We discovered it by accident one October evening on our fifth visit to Yosemite, when the fall colors were reflected in the river. It’s easy to find, but somehow had eluded us. An unplanned delight.
