Key to Outline Map of Yosemite Valley and Adjacent Peaks, with Elevations of Principal Landmarks.

Note: The elevations given below are from maps of the United States Geological Survey. These maps do not always agree one with another, and even in the same map slight differences between the legend and bench-mark figures are sometimes found. Such variations, however, are inconsiderable,—never more than a few feet. Where they occur, the authority of the latest map, the "Panoramic View of the Yosemite National Park," has as far as possible been followed.

The figures indicate height above sea-level. For height above the floor of Yosemite Valley, deduct 3,960 feet, the elevation of the pier near the Sentinel Hotel. In the case of waterfalls, the height, or "drop," of each is given, as well as its elevation above sea-level.
