The Cathedral Range
is a range of mountains
immediately to the South of Tuolumne Meadows
in Yosemite National Park
. It is a beautiful range, sculpted by glaciers out of granite
. The tops of the peaks in the range were above the level of the highest glaciation, and are therefore uneroded and spire-like. The range is named after Cathedral Peak, which is shaped like a cathedral
, because of this differential erosion
