Photo Sunday: America’s Best Idea

I don’t post pictures on this blog often enough (and since I recently bought a new camera, I might as well get some use out of it!), so with this post I’m kicking off a new semi-regular feature. If you’ve got interesting, unusual or just beautiful pictures that you own and would like to see here, I’ll consider posting submissions as well, so send them to me!

I was in California this past Labor Day weekend and had a chance to do some hiking and sightseeing in Yosemite. If anyone watched Ken Burns’ documentary on America’s national park system last week, this view will probably be familiar to you, but it’s still my favorite of all the ones I took. It’s a panorama composite of several pictures taken from Inspiration Point, which looks out on Yosemite Valley and most of the major landmarks of the park. Click for a (much) larger version.
