The four horse coach wheels you out on Inspiration Point and there lies Yosemite before you. Look down the valley at the height of the massiveness of El Capitan, the largest rock in the world. Yonder is Bridal Veil Falls with rainbows wavering in the wind-kissed mist that break and scatter with each gust of air. The Half Dome looms up in the distance. Let us descend into the valley and glance at Mirror Lake, North Dome, Vernal and Nevada Falls and up the trail to Glacier Point where from its dizzy height one looks down upon a lawn of mountain tops, snow covered and gaunt, how bleak and bare. Let us again descend into the valley where the sunshine lies and rest ourselves at the little village of Yosemite and watch the clouds nestle down for the night on Cloud's Rest, away off yonder and then you have seen Yosemite and the Big Trees of Mariposa, California.

Released as a split reel along with the comedy How They Got the Vote (1913).
