Yosemite 2017 Workshop

George Theodore, May 15, 2017

This was the most water we’ve ever seen at Yosemite. The falls were just awesome and the Merced River was running wild and fast. While we had to make our way around flooded areas that made parts of the park look like Bayou Country, those very conditions provided for some spectacular reflections. And, the dogwood was at peak. What a great week not to mention a great group.

We covered Cathedral Beach (temporarily Cathedral Pond), meadows, the falls, the river, Swinging Bridge, Valley View and other areas in the “low country”. The road to Glacier Point was still closed due to snow (first time we struck out on that).

We plan to return to Yosemite in late 2018. Here are some images from our Yosemite 2017 group:
