The geology of Yosemite is characterized by granitic rocks and remnants of older rock. About 10 million years ago,repparttar Sierra Nevada was uplifted and then tilted to form its relatively gentle western slopes andrepparttar 142627 more dramatic eastern slopes. The uplift increasedrepparttar 142628 steepness of stream and river beds, resulting in formation of deep, narrow canyons. About 1 million years ago, snow and ice accumulated, forming glaciers atrepparttar 142629 higher alpine meadows that moved downrepparttar 142630 river valleys. Ice thickness in Yosemite Valley may have reached 4,000 feet duringrepparttar 142631 early glacial episode.
