Oakhurst, California

Oakhurst, California, a small town near Yosemite. Travel photo on The Daily Fitchett
The grandeur of Yosemite and surrounding territory is absolutely awe inspiring.  Just look at the scale height of the trees versus the height of Tara and Mark, pictured here. All the trees in Yosemite National Park and nearby areas seem to be as big - or bigger - than the ones here.
