A half dozen times a year you’ll find me in Yosemite. The valley is so visually dynamic that it never gets old. The crowds can be overwhelming at times, but the snow chain requirements and severe flooding in January of 2017 provided the perfect opportunity for me to enjoy the valley in peace. I arrived the night after the park re-opened to the public. Yosemite and Bridalveil falls were roaring in full force. The snow was fresh on the steep Upper Yosemite Falls trail, and every hour or so there was a thunderous boom as ice broke free from the nearby granite wall which kept me on my toes. I spent 2 beautiful nights on the rim that I documented in this short film. I hope you enjoy it.
