I don't care that people think that Bierstadt is overly romantic

Sure, it's an idealized view. It's probably a compilation of a dozen things that Bierstadt saw in a dozen other places - most of which were in the Yosemite Valley, to be sure. Did St. Anthony Falls ever look exactly like this? No, but you wished they did and that's one of the reasons that I like it.
