Yosemite National Park, US

“Yosemite Valley, to me, is always a sunrise, a glitter of green and golden wonder in a vast edifice of stone and space.”

Need I say more? Ansel Adams has said it best. Even for me when I think of a national park in the US the first name that comes to mind is Yosemite National Park. It is supposed to be one of the first parks in the US with about 1200 sq miles of area. I lived in Bay area California for about 2.5 years and in that duration I planned a trip to this place at least 3 times if not more. Somehow each time the plan did not work out. Finally in Dec last year I flew back to California from Florida during the X’mas vacation and that’s when a friend and I finally figured out a plan and made a day trip to Yosemite.

I have to say the landscape was breath taking. Winters had set in, everything was covered in snow, and the bright sunshine made it all worth the trip. The Half dome looked so beautiful and the mirror lake stood true to its name with crystal clear reflection of the landscape around. I did manage to get some “good shots” ( I have a lots to learn hence the quotes) .. Few of the photographs are posted along for your viewing. I definitely make few more trips specially during Spring and once during Fall, and I just can’t wait for that to happen 🙂 .
