Yosemite Falls

Yosemite Falls Reflected

Record snowpack caused unusually high water volumes and even lowland flooding.

The Merced River is a raging torrent and out of its banks in some areas of the Valley. The foreground in this shot is Cook’s Meadow, normally dry and good for morning or late afternoon walks … and photos.

The flooded meadow provided a rare reflecting pool for this shot of Upper Yosemite Falls. A bear feeding the foreground would be nice, but I’ll take my fortunate timing of this shot.

Thought for the Day:  Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.                                                     Lao Tzu
