The first time you see El Capitan from the Valley floor is unforgettable. It rises suddenly, towering out of a flat expanse of meadow to greet the sky so far overhead, it seems impossible. The largest known granite monolith in the world, it is formed from a single chunk of granite, with its two ‘faces’ separated by The Nose. This vertical slab dominates the imaginations of all its visitors and is a Mecca for climbers from around the world. El Cap sprang to mind when I read this quote from John Muir, “It is by far the grandest of all the special temples of Nature I was ever permitted to enter.”

This is No. 11 in a planned edition of 12 prints in 12 months honoring Yosemite's 125th Birthday and a 'Big One' for me - We are both celebrating for the entire year! You can find the 10th print in the series here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/469440815/process-of-succession-yosemite-linocut

So pleased with this piece! It reminds me of watching the Sierra Foothills landscape roll past on family car trips to Yosemite when I was a kid. Also I like how, rather than looking static, the sweep of the clouds suggests the fast-moving storm.
