Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 68 (Cascade Creek)

Cascade Creek 

Cascade Creek off of Rte. 120

Photographers visiting national parks often have one big problem; how to stop taking pictures. It seemed to me that around every bend of the road at Yosemite, there was a picture postcard scene waiting to be captured. Stopping at each impulse would yield a MPG in the minus range … of that I am sure.

There were so many stunning views just a step to the side of nearly every roadway. At many places there were pull outs or parking areas, but for others, there was just a narrow shoulder.

Fortunately, digital cameras make the abundant capture of photographs relatively inexpensive. My advice is always to bring many camera batteries and a good number of memory cards.

The picture above was taken on the side of the route 120. There were a couple of pull outs (one on either side of the road), but I needed to walk to get the picture I wanted. This is not one of the “touted” views, but picturesque just the same. An earlier arrival would have yielded a better color of light, but I think you can sense the beauty that is almost everywhere in our parks.
