Taft Point and The Fissures

Taft Point and the Fissures are popular scenic spots located in Yosemite National Park in California.

Taft Point offers stunning views of the granite cliffs and valleys below, while the Fissures are a series of deep cracks in the rocks that can be explored by hikers. The overlook at Taft Point also offers a unique perspective on El Capitan, the iconic granite monolith that towers over the park. Visitors can also take in views of the Yosemite Valley and the High Sierra Mountains from this vantage point. A short, but steep hike leads to Taft Point, while the Fissures can be accessed via a longer hike.

Both spots offer a chance to experience the natural beauty of Yosemite and get away from the crowds.
