FAQ’s About the Author


Yes, that’s me, catching a few winks at Lower Cathedral Lake after a hard day of hiking.

Who am I?

My name is Loyd Schutte and I’m a writer, a photographer, and a web designer born on the banks of the Tuolumne and raised in the shadow of Yosemite. I live and work in Modesto California with my beautiful wife Tania, our son Zachary (8), and our daughter Katie (3).

Do I work in the park or for the concessionaires service?

I do not work for the National Park Service or any of the concessionaires serving the park. I have a great love of Yosemite and spend much of my free time in the park or researching it’s history, native cultures, flora, fauna and environs.

Do I live in the park?

I’d love to live closer to the park but my son needs to attend special classes for Autistic children so I am not able to at this time.
