Visit....Yosemite Valley of Sierra, CA


Him who formed the mountains, and created the wind,
and declares to man His thoughts;
Who made the dawn and the darkness,
and strides upon the heights of the earth:
The Lord, the God of hosts by name.

Amos 4:13

Yosemite has been an inspirational photographic attraction through her changes of season from the summer to the winter. As it may seem that she never looks the same by the ever changing touches of nature.

The landscape is magnificent and timeless through the ages for generations to come and enjoy.

John Muir, the naturalist wrote:

Yosemite Park is a place of rest, a refuge from the roar and dust…of the lowlands, in which one gains the advantages of both solitude and society. Nowhere will you find more company of a soothing peace-be-still kind. Your animal fellow-beings, so seldom regarded in civilization, and every rock-brow and mountain, stream, and lake, and every plant soon come to be regarded as brothers; even one learns to like the storms and clouds and tireless winds.
This one noble park is big enough and rich enough for a whole life of study and aesthetic enjoyment. It is good for everybody, no matter how benumbed with care.… None can escape its charms. Its natural beauty cleans and warms like a fire, and you will be willing to stay forever in one place like a tree.
Excerpt from “Quotations from John Muir,” an online Sierra Club exhibit.


Please view the latest winter images of the stamped date of 2009, with the touch of snow.

There was no fresh snow in the mid of January as we were fortunate to have a break in the weather. Scattered snow might be a predicament of another dry year in the Sierra, thus low water supply in the downstream valleys. The weather on the valley floor remained in the low 30F's in the sunlight, at higher locations the air added some light windchill factor to the elements. My toes and fingers were resisting the freezing cold, almost frozen after long exposure to the weather elements while toiling with the camera setup to capture the images. We ran after the changing light in the cold weather which was yet compelling in the pursuit of the perfect photographic opportunity.

For lodging in the valley, advanced and direct booking must be made 1 year or 3 months in the summer, winter respectively at the official park's site, other sites incurred booking fees.
This site does not apply to the various tent camping locations within the valley.
