Winners With the Most Votes
1st Place: William B.

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!

Some Honorable Mentions You’ll Love
Poolside Sunset, by Kevin O.
KO: “Epic sunsets at Evergreen Lodge pool and two excited kids ready to take a plunge!”

The Future King of the Valley, by Kristina M.

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!
