View of Yosemite Valley from Dewey Point hight above the valley. Great birds eye view of El Capitan, Sentinel Dome, Half Dome all the way to Mount Lyell and the Ansel Adams Wilderness. The views here makes Tunnel View by the road boring in comparison.
Drought in California has affected Yosemite's in many ways this year. We hoped to shoot Horse Tail Falls (the last two weeks in February) at sunset. The angle of the sun on the falls create a natural Fire Fall. I came to cross-county ski to Dewey Point, because of the lack of snow and warm temperatures, our trip became a backpack. We hiked from Tunnel View via the Pohono Trail to Dewey Point.
