Thanks to a tip from Michael Frye, Yosemite's resident photographer extraordinaire, I decided to head to Yosemite in early June to witness the historically large waterfalls and the melting snow in the high country. For three days I visited many of the popular sites in the valley and trekked through the snow and melting ice in the high country that had just opened for travel. This was my first trip since a brief but special trip in a heavy snowstorm many years ago. I came back this time with a few images from the classic vistas that have since the time of Ansel Adams made this park so famous. But I also returned with some more unique images that have me looking forward to my next trip to this hallowed park.
