Entries in Yosemite (2)


a small creek flows here

Driving along CA-41 (Wawona Hwy) in Yosemite, you cross several small creeks that you really wouldn’t otherwise notice except for the small brown signs on the side of the road. Alder Creek is one of those and this is just a few hundred feet down from the road. If you are coming in through from the Oakhurst side entrance, be on the lookout for it a bit before you get to the Wawona tunnel. Whether you go up or down the creek from the road, you won’t be disappointed.

the long fall

It’s been a while since I’ve gotten around to adding a new post here.  You know, life/work (mostly work) get in the way.                                                                        
This is the first photo I’m uploading from our trip to Yosemite.  While the weather was beautiful, it wasn’t really nice for taking pictures - there didn’t seem to be a cloud in the sky for the entire time we were up in the Sierras, not even a hint of those great afternoon thunderstorms that seem to build there.  Anyway, any trip to Yosemite is a great one and what’s a trip to Yosemite without a stop at Glacier Point.  This view of Upper Yosemite Falls from across the valley and used a 10 stop ND filter to smooth out the water.  Often at this time in the year, the falls (especially this one) have slowed to a trickle but with all the snowpack from the season, they were still flowing strong.
