Winter Waterfall, South Fork Tuolumne River – Yosemite National Park, CA

The Tioga road (http://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/tiogaopen.htm) is normally closed for the winter, from about mid-November through mid-May. This winter, however, has been very dry so far, allowing the road to stay open until January 17 (the latest closing date on record).

On my most recent visit to the Sierras, in late November/early December (2011), I was excited to be able to revisit this waterfall that I had photographed before in August of 2010 (http://rogerdreadingphoto.com/blog/?p=5). There wasn’t much snow, but the nights had been cold enough to form these beautiful ice crystals.
