Wintry Cathedral Beach, Yosemite National Park

There's a special kind of stillness that snow seems to provide, a kind of quiet that's quieter that pure silence. We were the first ones to visit Cathedral Beach yesterday morning (after hiking through thigh-deep powder to get there), and I was speechless when we reached the river's edge. This is always a lovely location, but I'd never seen it covered in snow before.
