A monarch butterfly was dangling upside down from one of the few remaining Jeffrey Shooting Star flowers along the trail to Lukens Lake. A few others were spotted over the next couple of days flying around the White Wolf area.

View of Yosemite Valley from the Wawona Tunnel Vista.

Rockfall events have helped shape many of the outstanding features along Yosemite Valley's walls, including Royal Arches, North Dome, and Half Dome. Giant talus slopes that slant away from the Valley walls accumulate debris with each rockfall event.
