Yosemite Bridges – Editorial Infrastructure Gallery

Although the park doesn’t have any truly massive bridge structures, it certainly does have many scenic, smaller ones. Quite a few feature beautiful archways and / or stone construction. Here are some of my photos of Yosemite bridges, taken around the park.

Most visitors drive right over scenic Tamarack Creek bridge without giving it a second glance. I suppose this easy to do when you have nearby Cascade Falls as a roadside distraction. In any case, this bridge features a lovely concrete arch spanning a cool, lush creek canyon.

Without a doubt, this is the most famous of the Yosemite bridges – at least as far as photographers are concerned. While it’s still quite nice to visit in any season, summer is probably the least photogenic.

The classic wood and stone design of this bridge seems fitting for a western national park. Here you’ll notice the Merced river almost approaching flood levels. This was during a warm spring, with abundant snowmelt from the previous heavy winter.

This is a nice walk, connecting you to brief trails such as the sentinel / cooks meadow loop, and Lower Yosemite Falls.

Also nearby is this charming little stone bridge over Yosemite Creek. I took this in early spring, as might be apparent by the young buds on these branches.

Not pictured here is Sentinel Bridge. It’s probably famous more so for its beautiful view of Half Dome & the Merced River. Not so much for the design or look of the structure itself.

Here are more pictures of beautiful Pohono Bridge.
