More paintings from my recent trip to California. Bridalveil Falls is just one of many majestic sites at Yosemite National Park. Massive amounts of water falling almost 4,000 feet is an incredible sight, but even more incredible is that it is just one of many falls and stunning mountain scenes that you will see in every direction. John Muir, an early pioneer, is responsibile for mapping out the park, which is around the size of Rhode Island. He had a vision, and wanted to save this for generations to come. Thank you , Mr. Muir for your foresite. He made this park possible, the first time in the history of our country that land came under national protection. Sad to say that even before this could happen, the settlers were cutting down massive Sequoia trees over 2,000 years old!
