YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. -- Perhaps no river crossing in Yosemite Valley has been more photographed than the historic Stoneman Bridge: a single, arching span faced with rough-hewn granite that provides a dramatic foreground to Half Dome, the park's most iconic natural marvel.
Yet the 205-foot bridge is slated for possible removal under proposed plans for restoring the natural flow of the Merced River. As a federally designated "Wild and Scenic River," some say its course should be shaped only by nature as it meanders through the valley - and bridge abutments alter that course.

And exactly what "environmental" damage is this bridge doing?

OK if you're going to Yosemite and getting excited about photographing the man made bits I think you may be missing something.

I enjoy photographing both the natural and man-made landscapes especially when they seem to blend together so well.
