Time Lapse Tuesday: Breathtaking Yosemite with Colin Delehanty
Tuesday, February 4, 2014, 2:35 PM -
This year marks the 150th anniversary of what’s known as the Yosemite Grant.
Back in 1864, U.S. President Lincoln designated Yosemite as the first protected wild land, which led to the creation of the National Park system.
More recently it became a world heritage site in recognition for its giant sequoia groves, waterfalls and biodiversity.
This park is also notable for its spectacular granite cliffs like half dome and el capitan, one of the world’s most popular spots for rock climbing, partly because the weather allows access year-round.
This week's featured time lapse travels to California’s Sierra Nevada, to Yosemite National Park with photographer Colin Delehanty.
