We visited San Francisco from 10-08/10-11 2020 and we did a day tour to Yosemite. All I can say is the pictures don’t do this park any justice. You really need at least 3 days to explore the park bc it’s huge! It’s literally the size of Rhode Island. It’s just beautiful, calm and peaceful.

One of the few sites we could see during the smoke of the Creek Fire, El Capitan shoots out of the ground and towers over the valley. Incredibly impressive mountain face, and insane to think that anyone could free climb it.

Whether you're up close or viewing it from another vantage point, it's still awe inspiring. We viewed it driving in first and stopping along Southside Drive (one way). Pre-covid, you would be jammed up with traffic both on this road and parking to stop and admire. If there's any plus to this dreaded virus that's befallen all of us, it's that now in the park you can take your time and more easily find places to view and stop. El Capitan is one of those sights. We took advantage and were able to enjoy the view and take some photos, before proceeding into the valley further. It was nice.

Did El Captain hike and Eagle peak together. It took us 10 hours. Total 18+ miles. Very challenging hike. Loved it.

El Capitan is a granite rock formation in Yosemite national park vertically. It is about 3000 ft high from its base to the top. El Capitan, also known as El Cap is located on the north side of Yosemite Valley, near its western end. It is very popular for rock climbers. The top of El Capitan can be reached by hiking out of Yosemite Valley on the trail next to Yosemite Falls but for climbers, the challenge is to climb up the sheer granite face. There are many named climbing routes, all of them arduous, including Iron Hawk and Sea of Dreams. In the early days of climbing, it used to take many days but recently many solo climbers have clocked it in few hours.
