Brothers - Yosemite National Park, California

Yosemite. The third park established in the US in 1890 (only Yellowstone and Sequoia preceded it) that conjures up scenes of granite rock formations, waterfalls, streams and rivers,  lakes, mountains and giant sequoia trees. Made famous by naturalist John Muir and later, photographer Ansel Adams, it was the fifth most visited National Park in 2017, with almost 4.5 million people taking in this natural wonderland. Walking along the Merced River in the area known as Yosemite Valley allows for the sighting of many of the famous rock formations with great nicknames: El Capitan, Three Brothers, Half Dome, Sentinel Rock, Glacier Point, Cathedral Rocks to name a few. Each one is unique from the other. This one, Three Brothers, was named after the capture of the three sons of Chief Tenaya near the base of the rock formation. The official names of the three consists of Eagle Peak (the uppermost "brother"), Middle Brother and Lower Brother.
