Photo of the Month – March 2011

 

Waterfall, South Fork Tuolumne River - Yosemite National Park, CA

Waterfall, South Fork Tuolumne River - Yosemite National Park, CA

The Tioga road crosses the Sierras through the spectacular high country of Yosemite National Park, starting just south of Lee Vining, CA (near Mono Lake), through the Tioga Pass (el. 9,943 ft.), and ending in the Yosemite Valley. It is closed much of the year due to snow. There had been late snow through the end of May (2010), so when I came through in August, the streams were still full of water and the meadows full of flowers. As I was passing this waterfall, I caught it out of the corner of my eye, and I had to stop. The narrow stream of water was caught in the light as it flowed over the large, dark boulders.
