I believe this was the view from the South West gate into the park, before heading into the Valley. I was 21 years old, driving cross-country with my best friend, and this was one of our primary stops. It was one of those catch-your-breath moments to see such an image of beauty, at such an impressionable age and full of romantic zeal.
