El Portal Road & Southside Drive (Part 1) - Yosemite National Park, CA

During March of 2018, I spent 3 days in Yosemite National Park in California taking photos. This was my first ever trip to Yosemite National Park during winter. It was amazing! I don't think I have ever experienced that much snow out in the forest. I visited the valley, went snowshoeing on Glacier Point Road, went snowshoeing on Tioga Road, and shot many photos at Tunnel View. My photos will be split into 14 parts. I hope you enjoy! If you ever get a chance to visit Yosemite National Park during the winter, I highly recommend it. It is a very different experience than a spring or summer trip. My cellphone photos from the trip can be viewed here.
