Clouds around Cathedral Rocks and Bridal Veil Falls from Valley View. "The sun shines not on us but in us." John Muir.

Sentinel Rock overseeing the Yosemite Valley floor. It is probably my favorite geological rock formation in the valley. Still too early in the season for peaking Fall colors, but I wanted a quick trip to scout out some running trails. #fallcolors #sentinelrock #yosemitevalley #mercedriver #optoutside #trailrunning
Taking our camper up to almost 10,000 feet in elevation was awesome and terrifying all at the same time!!! Though, it was definitely worth it to be where we are! This may be the coolest park we've ever been in. What's your favorite national park? #Yosemitenationalpark #tiogapass #10000feet #enchantedforest #gianttrees #mercedriver #happypup #californiacruising #
Since running the Rae Lakes Loop 3 weeks ago and hardly feeling sore after, I've been eager to capitalize on my fitness and training. The only objective on my list equal to or bigger was a loop around the Clark Range in Yosemite. I started out at 0540, solo and unsupported, from the Mono Meadows Trailhead on Glacier Point Rd, crossed Red Mtn. Pass (11,250') at 18 miles in. I passed two hikers on the first leg, then headed over the pass. I worked my way down along the headwaters of the Merced River and down the Merced Canyon for 25 miles without seeing a single soul. It was beautiful country that I have never explored before. I chased daylight until I got to Merced Lake. I spotted a few headlamps in Little Yosemite Valley as I headed for Nevada Falls, then up and southwest to the Mono Meadows Trailhead clocking in at a total of 52.6 miles in a day. Now I'm sore...😆 #yosemite #highsierra #ottowaylake #minarets #mercedcanyon #mercedriver #washburnlake #trailrunning #ultrarunning #cabg

Merced river just above Nevada Falls in @yosemitenps. The river first formed as the Sierra Nevada rose about 10 million years ago, and sediment eroded from its canyon helped form the flat floor of the San Joaquin Valley. Glaciation during the Ice Ages carved the high elevation parts of the watershed, including Yosemite Valley, into their present shape. Historically, there was an extensive riparian zone which provided habitat for millions of migrating birds, and the river had one of the southernmost runs of chinook salmon in North America. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #yosemitenationalpark #california #travels #instatravels #yosemite #nature #outdoors #emeraldpool #naturephotography #canon #vernalfalls #canonphotography #canon5dmarkiii #yosemitevalley #mercedriver #misttrail #ynp #visityosemite #californiatour #sierranevada #sierranevadas #mountain #mountains

This in-between season where nothing grows... the light lives, turning even the dullest scenery into something dreamlike. #yosemite #rangeoflight #sierra #cathedralrock #california #nationalpark #yosemitenationalpark #goldenhour #twilight #fall #merced #mercedriver #mirror #reflection #landscape #nature #americathebeautiful #travel #letsgosomewhere

Great day in Yosemite! Mist trail was unexpectedly not easy but extremely beautiful! Get ready to be overtaken by 70 years old man on your way to the top 😜👌⛰⛰⛰ . . . #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #yosemitefalls #misttrail #mercedriver #waterfalls #vernalfalls #nevadafalls #topofnevadafalls #halfdome #besthiking #besthikingtrails #beatifulnature
The last of the river days at #mercedriver it's been 23 years that I have been exploring the #mercedrivercanyon and it's kind of scary to think that this might be my last year of doing it.
There is a little know #dirtroad between #elportal on the #mercedriver to the small private inholding in #yosemite of #foresta It has great views of the #mercedrivercanyon and a couple of #waterfalls Sadly I believe it's been burned over by at least one recent fire and I heard a rumor at least one of the bridges was destroyed by the fire effectively closing the route. #sierranevada #california
Some things in life cannot be improved upon, one of those things is Yosemite National Park. If you ever have the chance to go- go! As you cruise the valley you will come upon view after breathtaking view. This was taken the evening before the first winter snowstorm. The last night of Fall. #yosemite #halfdome #goldenhour #alpenglow #perfection #light #merced #mercedriver #anseladams #anseladamswilderness #johnmuir #california #nature #reflection #autumn #winter #landscape #travel #letsgosomewhere
I am obsessed with fall colors. This is autumn 🍂 along the Merced river. Acrylic painting on 12x12 canvas. #art #artist #artistsoninstagram #fallcolors #acrylicpainting #landscapepainting #boldbrush #california #californiaartist #mercedriver #yosemite #artstarsmag
Yosemite. We see you. All around. You amaze. #thisis40 ❤️
Yosemite This photograph of the Merced River in Yosemite was taken during our recent visit. I’ve been thinking about taking several elements from it and creating a landscape in watercolor. Should be fun! #exploretocreate #watercolor #watercolour #art #mgraham #landscape #landscapephotography #yosemite #yosemitevalley #california #river #mercedriver #park #explore #painting #instagood
Knocking stuff off our bucket list before the snow hits! He wanted to fish the Merced River & I wanted to camp in Yosemite! #yosemitenationalpark #findyourpark #nps #ca #yosemitevalley #merced #yosemite #mercedriver #optoutside #exploreca #whyihike #hikecalifornia #california #greatoutdoors #flyfishing
The South Fork Merced River that runs through the Yosemite Valley Floor. Each time that I've been to Yosemite National Park, it is very different than the last. Yet, it stays the same in so many ways, for years. It's never quite the same from day to day, or from Season to Season. #siteseeing #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #mercedriver #spectacular #landscapephotography #landscapephoto #naturephotography #nature #outdoorphotography #outdoor #sandbar #riverrunsthroughit #southforkmercedriver #views #travelphotography #naturallandscape #amazing #naturescolors
“Camp out among the grass and gentians of glacier meadows, in craggy garden nooks full of Nature’s darlings. Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.” ~John Muir . . #flashbackfriday Yosemite 2017🍁🍂 . . #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #yosemitevalley #elcapitan #johnmuir #johnmuirquote #yosemiteconservancy #westbysouthwest #naturephotography #nature #naturelovers #naturesmarvels #nps #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #ourwild #nationalparkgeek #sierras #mercedriver #trees #autumn #autumnleaves #goparks #usinterior #canonphotography #natgeoyourshot #autumncolors #reflection #california
After three months of relocating back to Yosemite and Mariposa, I can finally say I’m home again! It’s been about the same amount of time since my last post. I took this snap on my commute home today. Life is good! I’m looking forward to sharing my renewed Yosemite & Mariposa County adventures with my friends.
#tbt to that one time we killed it for RedBull in LA so I drove my happy ass up to Yosemite for funzies, and tried to get lost in the woods for some R&R. I found my happy place!

Throwback to 2015. A split from the Merced river that travels through the Happy Isles area and rejoins the Merced at this point. Didnt have a longer zoom lens at this point. Shot with my Canon T4i. . . . . #happyisles #curryvillage #mercedriver #yosemitevalley #yosemitenationalpark #yosemite #joinmuirtrail #riverrapids #river #nature #happy #feliz #love #amor #calm #calma #happyplace #canon #canont4i #canonvideo
These 2 images were taken from Valley View in Yosemite 6 months apart. What a difference! It seems like you can walk across the Merced River on the first image... Notice how puny Bridalveil Falls is in the first image. #valleyview #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #mercedriver #mercedriveryosemite #bridalveilfalls #yosemitevalley #landscapephotography #drought #dramaticclouds

PREVAIL "Spot off a fallen log from this perspective and setting up for strong footing. Without warning, I slipped and splashed into merced river.  Wet and embarrassed, regardless made the mishaps productive. In all calmness of the river produced a mirror-like surface. Allowing to capture intimate portrayal of El Capitan's test of time”. • • • • #canonusa #canonphotography #eos7d #dslr #lowepro #loweprobags #reallyrightstuff #indurotripods #photography #landscape #waterscapes #cloudscapes #cityscapes #earth #nature #travel #outdoorphotography #sunrise_and_sunsets #twilight #magichour #goldenhour #longexposurephotography #longexposure #art #elcapitan #yosemite #mercedriver #reflection #blackandwhite
The art of hair #заощущениями Идея сделать появилась ровно год назад правда на другом столбе, с Ромой я тогда не была еще знакома @r.yushin когда рассказала про идею предложил подстричься на Перьях.В Работах @linnikovm я увидела ,что это тот человек ,что сможет передать ведь дух свободы и непередаваемого ощущения легкости, что чувствовала я когда находишься на вершине, а проблемы, страхи, тревоги улетают с каждым волоском все дальше и дальше и действительно почти штурмовой ветер этому способствовал ;) Рекомендую поробовать всем ☝,но в хорошую погоду 🌞#travel #cuthair #rocks #forest #show #шоу #лес #заповедник #naturale #nature #topofrocks #top #bestshow #artspace #musicofsoul #musicforest #wearebest #столбы #лес #исскуство #стрижка #шоу #эмоции #дзен #ощущения #заповедник #перья #скала #sheisnotlost #climbing #mercedriver

Когда я не смогла найти своих друзей на оз. Светлое обойдя его три раза познакомилась с замечательными людьми , которые за пару недель проявили ко мне больше доброты, внимания чем некоторые друзья за всю жизнь. С ними просто было легко беззаботно, свободно ведь я поймала единомышленников. Наверно это был один из первых случаев в моей жизни, который показал, что не все должно идти по плану, а самые интересные и захватывающие путешествия порой происходят совершенно случайно 😜
