When you are blessed with a rainbow 🌈 across a gushing waterfall, you are truly blessed!! We happened to experience this at the bridalveil falls, which is thicker than ever right now!! The place where we took the pictures you simply get drenched with the showers from the falls, but its simply worth it.
The name bridalveil comes from the fact that the it is too windy to make falls have a veil like appearance which can be seen separately from the falls.

A look at Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park, California. It’s a fabulous place to marvel at the miracle of nature, even without the usual suspects (Half Dome and El Capitan) in the frame. Photo taken June 12, 2007.

when you look this good in love, you never go out of style.🤘
Rock climbing in Yosemite - the epicenter of rock climbing in the US - check!!! ✔ We spent a whole day exploring a side of Yosemite few ever get to experience yet alone with three kids and a dog. To say this tops the list of awesome things we've done as a family is an understatement. We put our 4 year old on a granite wall overlooking Yosemite Valley and she loved it! Her older brothers ages 8 and 9 made it to the top and got some pretty epic views of several waterfalls feeding the bustling Merced river below. We only got a single route in and it took all day to pack, get there and set up the top rope but it was worth every minute. You simply never know what is possible until you get out and there and explore. We thought Yosemite was way out of our league. And mostly it is - we could sit and watch the pros on El Cap all day (we did one evening). But this one sweet spot had a moderate 5.8 that John led and set for us. So stinking cool. We'll be back. Who knows, maybe someday we'll take on El Capitan. #familygoals#yosemiteclimbing#parentsthatrock#notordinary
Got up early to catch this rainbow at Yosemite Falls! Not pictured :My camping stove set-up to heat water for my breakfast and coffee. I was pretty damn euphoric sitting in a national park waiting for just the right moment to take this picture.
I'm home after a week of camping and hiking in Yosemite National Park. Understanding nature's ecosystems is a cornerstone of my artistic practice, so I treasure trips like these to expand my perspective and deepen the roots of what my work can do. I return home sharpened and renewed, to continue creating space for stories and ideas we might otherwise miss.
Thank you, Yosemite Valley, for being a home away from home to me on this bigger house called Earth, of which all of us are stewards and citizens. 🌎
All this sun has me dreaming of summer backpacking and nights in the wilderness ☀️🏕✨
This particular site was on our very first backpacking trip together from Tuolemne Meadows to Yosemite Valley. The night was cold and there was still snow on the ground but there is nothing quite like the stars and silence that you get by being as far as your feet can take you from civilization 🌲🙌🏔
The first of many photos to come from my trip to @yosemitenps! I'm so incredibly happy with how these turned out and you'll see why in the next few posts! If you love this as much as I do, please share on your story! 😊🏔📸
Half Dome in Yosemite was harder for me to shoot. There were so many trees around when shooting from the ground.
Many hiking trails are closed to dogs and that makes for a challenge when wanting to shoot at an elevated level when we have our little dog with us.
The trees you see to the right in the foreground made for a nice shot, but are deceiving when trying to get a real perspective in size of this massive rock. Look at trees on the bottom left for a better idea of how big Half Dome really is.
Nothing quite like Yosemite to make you feel small in a world of giants. Giant trees, giant rocks, giant canyons, giant views, giant beauty. 💚
Some days you just have to stop and stare in awe of the view.
That is how I felt looking up at Yosemite Falls roaring as it drops a total of 2,425 feet to the valley floor.
I am going to confess to taking photos everytime we saw the falls. My phone is filled with bad car photos taken out the window just because the falls are that amazing.
Thankfully you can almost guarantee getting an epic shot by walking the Yosemite Falls trail.
This is a phone shot and I am pretty darn happy with it. If you have not been to Yosemite please plan a trip!
It is a park that everyone should see at least once.
Keep an eye on Tammilee Tips and Park Ranger John for a TON of posts coming out soon! We are spending the year working with Visit Yosemite Madera County to help everyone plan an epic trip!
