Half Dome (1 of 2)
Photo of the Half Dome rock formation in Yosemite National Park. The formation overlooks a glacial valley and is an example of an exfoliated dome, which means that rock layers weather and fall off in sheets of boulders and slabs. The unique rock shape formed before the glaciation of the valley.
