Springtime Along the Dana Fork
Yosemite's high country in late spring of a very dry year. The snow was almost gone from the peaks even though it was still May. This is the Dana Fork of the Tuolumne River right above where it joins with the Lyell Fork, just upstream from Tuolumne Meadows, at over 8,500 feet of elevation (about 2600 meters). The main peak visible at the back of the image is the north end of the Kuna Crest, Mammoth Peak, at 12,117 feet (3693 meters).
