RIP Pioneer Cabin “tunnel tree” sequoia (908 – 2017)

RIP Tunnel Tree

The tunnel tree we visited in 2013 fell over during this past Sunday’s storm. Of the three tunnel trees, only the Clothespin Tree remains.

For perspective, my kids were each over 6′ tall when this photo was taken.

Yosemite National Park

A little over three years ago this happened.

Yosemite’s Tunnel View with a full moon

Yosemite National Park under a full moon

Last month’s trip to Yosemite had us staying south of the the valley, which meant a different approach than the one I had always taken before from the San Francisco Bay Area. When you come in from the south you experience “tunnel view”–made famous by Ansel Adams. We happened to be leaving the valley to return to our lodgings just as a nearly full moon rose above the scene.

El Capitan Meadow

El Capitan Meadow

Although you can see El Capitan in El Capitan Meadow, the views are excellent all the way around so today’s photo is not of El Capitan but is the view west from the meadow. Ryan and I are in there, but with a wide angle lens we sort of get lost in the scenery.
