Yosemite National Park free pdf Excerpt from Yosemite National Park: California An Appreciation of Yosemite NationalPark By Harriet Monroe. Editor of Poetry, a Magazine of Verse Wrilltm Especially for ihe United Stales Railroad Administration Wice and each time through an entire July I have tramped with the CaHfornia Sierra Club through the grandest areas of the Yosemite National Park. I have camped in the Valley, in Tuolumne Meadows, and in the lost Hetch-Hetchy sleeping to the sound of rushing waters with mountains towering around me. I have crossed Vogelsang Pass when the mountain hemlocks were just slipping off their wet mantles of snow- I have descended the formidable Tuolumne Canyon past the third fall- and under Mount Dana I have looked down over the red rocks of Bloody Canyon to Lake Mono, lying incredibly blue among the pink and lilac craters of dead volcanoes. My memories of this prismatically shattered earth are sharp in details of beauty, but all of them rise against white granite and falling waters. Never anywhere else can there be mountains so silver-white - El Capitan shouldering the sky, Clouds Rest and the two great Domes giving back the sun, and Ritter, Lyell and Dana, fierce and jagged, guarding their inscrutable heights. And through the crevices of this gleaming granite run everywhere crystal streams streams mad with joy that foam as they fly, and shout as they take enormous leaps over stark precipices. All kinds of falling waters - the delicate cascades of Illilouette- the wind-blown tulle of Bridal Veil- Nevada, lacy, white-fingered, taking her 600-foot leap like a step in a dance- Vernal, broad-shouldered, strong-bodied, massive, as he jumps like an athlete- and, most wonderful of all, Yosemite, that Upper Yosemite Fall whose leap is 1,500 feet a tall white living figure against the formidable cliff, a figure moving and breathing, tossing the spray from his eyes, shining tall and straight there like a young Greek god. Everywhere waters falling over and under and into white granite, falling in ribbons and rivers and cataracts, ringing golden bells, booming great guns, spraying the little flowers and the giant sequoias as they pass. Everywhere splendor a world gorgeous, exultant, full of color and motion, existing for itself, for its own joy, and taking man on sufferance, as it were, if he will accept its terms and be free of soul.
