Journal - Over eons, rivers and glaciers somehow carved 3,000 feet into solid granite to create Yosemite Valley. The nuances of the Valley form spectacular rock formations, for which Yosemite Valley is famous. Visitors all year can gaze up from the Valley floor to appreciate the enormity of it all. The Merced River flows through the valley. The Merced River is a 145-mile long tributary of the San Joaquin River flowing from the Sierra Nevada into the San Joaquin Valley and is the primary watercourse flowing through Yosemite Valley. The Merced River drops over Nevada Falls and Vernal Falls, together known as the "Giant Staircase", then receives Illilouette Creek and flows into Yosemite Valley, where it meanders between pine forests and meadows that fill the valley floor.
El Capitan is a vertical rock formation in Yosemite National Park, located on the north side of Yosemite Valley, near its western end. The granite monolith is about 3,000 feet from base to summit along its tallest face, and is a popular location for rock climbers. The formation was named "El Capitan" by the Mariposa Battalion when they explored the valley in 1851. El Capitan ("the captain", "the chief") was taken to be a loose Spanish translation of the local Native American name for the cliff, variously transcribed as "To-to-kon-oo-lah" or "To-tock-ah-noo-lah”. It is unclear if the Native American name referred to a specific tribal chief or simply meant "the chief" or "rock chief".
