Valley Gazing

WB: “I think the distance from the park was a blessing in disguise. The area we stayed, W11, was mostly quiet and provided a great contrast to the hustle and bustle of Yosemite on Memorial Weekend.”

EL: Congratulations on your big win, William, and a big thank you to all your friends and family who participated in the contest. We love how you were able to capture the beauty of Yosemite Valley and how you both were enjoying your time in the park!

Snow Showers, by Anne W.

AW: “Bear Shakin’ a Tree” – We brought a friend, who’s NEVER seen snow all her life, and my 10 y/o son, whom we call Eli Bear, shook a tree with her under it for the full experience (and that slow-mo video). The next day, all the snow was gone. It was phenomenal”

EL: What a fun experience to show a friend snow for the first time!
