Many drivers just whiz over the quaint Pohono Bridge on their way to famous destinations in Yosemite such as Tunnel View, Wawona Lodge, Bridal Veil Falls and the Village. It is worth a stop and there is space for one to two cars right after crossing the bridge on the right side. One can walk over the bridge safely and... More

To many this may seem like just an old bridge, but it's not as old as one may think. This bridge was build in 1968 and crosses over the Merced River on the west end of Yosemite Valley. If you are near, it is worth making a stop to see the flow of the river and may snap a picture.... More

Also a sign to slow down a LOT. If you are leaving and see this bridge it is sign that you just passed valley view. You... More

This bridge like the others of this genre were hand built by master masons. Each stone is places exactly the right position and shaped to blend into a work of art. Being from Maine and having spent a lot of time at Arcadia national park where the bridges are huge and all different, I came away wiht a greater appreciation... More
