Description

The granite dome above Olmstead Point, as do many locations in the Yosemite high country, exhibits great examples of glacial polish. I chose this particular section because of the pattern of smooth striated granite combined with rough areas. This image was taken later in the day when the low angle of sunlight accentuated the pattern and texture.
