The historic Tunnel View overlook has captured the awe of visitors for nearly 75 years and has been an iconic part of Yosemite National Park’s viewshed, with an estimated 5,000 to 7,000 people visiting the site per day during the height of the tourist season.
The Wawona Tunnel was completed in 1933 during an era that heralded a boom in design and development throughout the National Park Service, helping to initiate the National Park Service’s “rustic design style.” The modern Wawona Road is approximately 28 miles in length from the northern terminus of California State Route 41 at the boundary of Yosemite National Park to South Side Drive near Bridalveil Falls in Yosemite Valley. A large percentage of people entering Yosemite Valley use the Wawona Road. While the Wawona Road is generally considered a somewhat tame road and among the easiest to take in Yosemite Valley, that wasn’t always the case.
Tunnel View provides one of the most famous views of Yosemite Valley. From here you can see El Capitan and Bridalveil Fall rising from Yosemite Valley, with Half Dome in the background. Located at the eastern end of Yosemite Valley, the best times to visit Tunnel View are early spring (when Bridalveil Fall is at peak flow) and winter, when the beautiful granite domes are draped in snow and mist.
CANVAS GALLERY WRAPS
Your image will be printed directly onto a fine art Epson Exhibition Signature Worthy Canvas using archival oil-based inks with high-end printers. Your canvas will then be stretched and wrapped around an artist’s stretcher frame using either a standard ¾ inch stretcher or a 1 ½ inch deep “Gallery Wrap” stretcher.
You have two finish options for your canvas wrap: Matte or Glossy. A Matte Canvas is given a clear coating to protect the sensitive canvas fibers.
You have three options for treating the edges of your canvas wrap:
- Stretching and wrapping the image around the edge of the canvas
- Mirroring the image around the edge of the canvas
- Printing the edge of the canvas a mat black
Your wrap will then be finished with a protective backing – your Gallery Wrap can be hung either with or without a frame.
Canvas Gallery Wraps usually take 2-3 weeks for printing and delivery.
