Photo Essay: Yosemite in the Winter

by Ekua on March 17, 2010 in California,captured on memory card

A couple of months ago I visited Yosemite National Park. I’ve been to the park before, but it was my first time visiting it in the middle of the sleepy snowy winter. It’s beginning to seem like spring is finally approaching and these pictures are long overdue:

The Iron Door Saloon in Groveland, a refuge for wackiness. Those are dollar bills covering the ceiling.

Whoever decorated the Saloon obviously had a dry sense of humor.

Silhouettes and early evening light.

New and old leaves make designs in the snow.

Half Dome through the branches.

Half Dome sprinkled with snow.

Bridal Veil Falls.

A snowy drive back to the city.

Yup, the saloon was a pretty fun place! We were among the few visitors, but everyone treated us like we were regulars and we had a great time.
