This photo looks so much like it was taken in Yosemite Valley; but it wasn't,
it was taken from the base of Tehipite Dome overlooking Tehipite Valley. This is Yosemite Valley's wilderness cousin, just a bit narrower and steeper. There are no cars, no tourists, no garbage, none of that b.s.. You have to work to get in and out. It's a comfortable two day hike from Wishon Reservoir, but can be done in one long day. I've visited three times and had the whole pristine habitat to myself each time. Middle Fork of The Kings River, Sequoia/Kings Canyon NP, California, USA. July 1987. Kodachrome 64.
