The hotel was a massively difficult undertaking as thousands of tons of stone, steel and timber had to be hauled over narrow, twisting mountain roads to the park. To the protect against fire, the outside of the hotel is made from concrete poured in forms and stained to look like redwood timbers. Remember a breath-taking visit to Yosemite with this handsome bead.
