Posted today: Winter In Yosemite on Zenfolio.
Yosemite at winter is a pristine wonderland of bright sunny days, snowy meadows, icicle-draped pines and oaks, alpine-glow sunsets, rainbow framed waterfalls and snow-encrusted mountaintops. The breathtaking majesty of a Yosemite winter is simply unparalleled.
Now this was my first time in the park approaching anything like winter…it was actually spring, with expected temperatures in the 70’s. I arrived, however, to light snow (at the park entrance) and 19 F at the valley floor and snow flurries! Tent, no heat, no snow rated sleeping bag…well, you get the picture!
