Yosemite National Park

Back to Western Roadtrip 2010

PHOTO TIP: I would suggest at first not going in the summer to avoid crowds, as well as the fact that while I have not been at another time, based on photos I think it is as its best in other seasons. But even in the summer, the crowds are there from about 10-4. At sunrise and sunset, the park is void of people. I had the Valley View (above) to myself at sunset. 

Above, dusk falls over Yosemite Valley. Foreground lit by flashlight.
