Tenaya Falling Water

A big thunderstorm hit Yosemite on Saturday, July 24th, bringing lots of rain and hail to the high country. Driving along Tioga Pass Road, just east of Tenaya Lake, I pulled over to see if I could wait it out. After being pummeled with marble-sized hail for about 15 minutes, I was rewarded with a spontaneous waterfall cascading over the granite slope on the opposite side of the road right above a nice display of wildflowers. I should note that this was a handheld shot as my tripod was busy keeping dry in the trunk. Thus, it's a bit soft in focus. Nevertheless, it was a great opportunity to capture something unusual. Another transcendent moment in the wilderness...

 

Please come follow my latest endeavor, the Wildflower Conservancy. You'll find lots of helpful information as well as reports from recent wildflower sightings. Thank you!
