Marine One and the air convoy flew over a breathtaking landscape (rocky mountains, waterfalls, large forests)  before landing  at the Ahwahnee Meadow landing zone (an open field) in Yosemite National Park, with the Half Dome lit by the sun in the backdrop and the moon detaching itself from a pristine blue sky.
Maybe one of the most beautiful Marine One landing ever.
First Family emerged from Marine One at 7:54 walking slowly in the high green grass.
POTUS waved at a crowd gathered a bit further under the trees that could be heard shouting to welcome him.
He shook hands with National Parks rangers before getting into the Beast.
Motorcade is rolling.
