There is still one space left in my Photo Tour to Yosemite and the White Mountains. Here are a few shots from last year to pique your interest.
With some luck the June 9/10/11 period might offer “ice out day” for Tioga Lake. It will definitely be later than last year’s May 30-31 date. I’ve been there and seen it ice out in 24-hours with a strong warm wind.
Nesting ground birds in the White Mountain bristlecone area are well camouflaged. I nearly stepped on these cuties, they are practically invisible! Only the garish orange throat of a hungry hatchling startled me into awareness. High altitude parent birds harvest insects from the snow fields.
