Yosemite in Winter

Photo tour of Yosemite National Park in Winter


It's really hard to catch Yosemite National Park covered in snow. Storms dump plenty of the white stuff on the park most winters, but because of the Yosemite Valley's relatively low elevation, it seldom sticks around. In December, 2006, I was headed for Yosemite to attend the fabulous Bracebridge Dinner. As luck would have it, I drove into the valley on Sunday afternoon on the heels of a snowstorm. Photographing like mad while trying to keep fingers, toes and other body parts warm, I captured these images that afternoon and the following morning. By Monday when I left, it was almost gone.
