Brief Directions

Yosemite National Park is situated within the Sierra Nevada Mountains in eastern California. I use Highway 140 to reach the park's western boundary from Merced, California- but there are entrance points through the Tuolumne Meadows and Wawona areas of the park too.

Description

I worked for a concessions services company at the Ahwanee Hotel as a Baker's Helper for about fifteen months during which time, I photographed the park during my days off from work. This photo was made during one of those days. I was upset because I had woken-up really late, and I felt like I had missed a day of photography. I got dressed and as I left my cabin, I saw Yosemite Falls blanketed in clouds and snow. I new this was a perfect opportunity and I captured this fantastic image just a few feet from my cabin. I felt much better after that, although the rest of the day remained photographically uneventful as I remember it.
