Every river in the Sierra plays its own tune. Listen closely, and you can hear the melody. Few, if any, California waterways can match the Tuolumne River when it comes to pure scenery. But the sounds it produces -- sometimes soothing, other times thundering -- are just as striking along the classic hike to Glen Aulin in the Yosemite National Park high country.

People are probably sick of me always doing this but:

"At 4.5 miles, you cross the river on a sturdy footbridge with your first view of the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne, not to mention Matterhorn Peak and Mount Conness."

Uh... Yeah... the reporter is right he shouldn't have mentioned that.
You can see Half Dome from Turlock... but good luck seeing Conness or Matterhorn from that footbridge.

Is it possible he is seeing Whorl Mountain instead, which is blocking out Matterhorn Peak?

Hmmm... I could be wrong. Someone prove me wrong.
Maybe just a glimpse of them?
Nothing that I can remember that is "wow".
Now from McGee Lake... that one is a "wow... Conness".
