Landmark Nevada Fall

16. Nevada Fall, United States

Nevada Fall is a 181 m high waterfall on the Merced River in Yosemite National Park, California. It is located below the granite dome, Liberty Cap, at the west end of Little Yosemite Valley. The waterfall is widely recognized by its bent shape, in which the water free-falls for roughly the first third of its length to a steep slick-rock slope. This mid-fall impact of the water on the cliff face creates a turbulent, whitewater appearance in the falls and produces a great deal of mist which covers a wide radius, which led to its current name. Additionally, when viewed from the left-hand side, its angular shape is suggestive of the western border of the state of Nevada.

Landmark Half Dome

15. Half Dome, United States

Half Dome is a granite dome in Yosemite National Park, located in northeastern Mariposa County, California, at the eastern end of Yosemite Valley - possibly the most familiar rock formation of Yosemite. The granite crest rises more than 1,444 m above the valley floor. Half Dome is nearly as whole as it ever was. The impression from the valley floor that this is a round dome which has lost its northwest half is an illusion. From Washburn Point, Half Dome can be seen as a thin ridge of rock oriented northeast-southwest, with its southeast side almost as steep as its northwest side except for the very top.
