The Fissures of Taft Point
One of the first things you see when you reach Taft Point will be the Fissures.
These are huge cracks in the granite. Hold onto your children as this area can
be dangerous. We heard water falling over the edge, but we weren't able to see
it or even get a photo of it. I took a photo of one of the fissures where a
couple of huge boulders were embedded in between the fissure walls.
Once past the fissures you see a little fenced in area at the top of the hill.
This is a great spot to view Yosemite Valley. It is a steep hike to the metal
fence but worth the effort. Look for the geological marker after you get to
this point. It was placed there in 1906. Look over the fence straight down
3,500 feet to the valley floor. Not for those with severe fears of height.
