Tuolumne In Pictures
Yosemite's Tuolumne Meadows has been up-and-coming landscape photographer Ryan Alonzo's summer home for several years, and he shares his deep sense of place in this exquisite, spare collection of photographs. Because he lives and works in the park, he is there to capture those special moments of light and weather in which Yosemite shines. Through his fresh lens, readers can experience the fields of wildflowers, the beckoning granite domes, and the mountain peak vistas of a remarkable corner of California's high Sierra, with each image accompanied by naturalist notes. For up to half the year, Tuolumne Meadows is closed to visitors due to snow on Tioga Road; Tuolumne in Pictures is the next best thing to being there.
