"The Incomparable Valley." -- Well known words describing Yosemite Valley. The story of Yosemite began about 500 million years ago when the area lay beneath an ancient sea. Yosemite Valley's sheer walls and flat floor (or U-shape) was created by glaciers. Glaciers flowed down the Merced River and carried away the weaker rock, leaving the harder portions, like El Capitan and Cathedral Rocks. In contrast, the area just west of the park is V-shaped because the glaciers did not extend this far.
