Today’s Photo of the Day is a beautiful shot of Upper Yosemite Fall by Kirk Kittell. I think what drew my attention to this photo was the sharpness and clarity. The clouds swirling around the rocks really give it some character. Nice work, Kirk. Photo by Kirk Kittell via Flickr.

Pam wrote in to ask me the other day, “When am I going to be able to go through Tioga Pass?” Well, not anytime soon. Tioga Pass is closed and, unless there’s some freak warm front and storm that comes through to melt all the snow, will probably be for a while. Traditionally the Park […]
