El Capitan and the Merced River, Yosemite National Park
Although it doesn’t have the intensity of the aspen that can be found in the eastern Sierra, Yosemite Valley does have interesting fall color from the maples and other trees. This is one of my favorite spots to catch reflections of El Capitan in the Merced River, taken from the south bank in early October. The river flows quietly here and creates these mirror like images in the fall.
