Donnell Vista & Dardanelle (Part 1) - Stanislaus/Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest

On June 9th, 2019, I took a day trip to the Stanislaus National Forest and Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest in California. I traveled to places along State Route 108. During June, there were still some snow on the mountains, which I got quite some photos of. I split the photos into 4 parts. I hope you enjoy the photos.

This is part 1 of my photos. All the photos today are from Stanislaus National Forest. Photos are from Donnell Vista, Dardanelle, and near State Route 108.

Message From The Photographer: I know these photos are from very long time ago. If you have been following me on social media for a while, you'd know I've been dealing with vision loss (not completely blind) for over a year now. My photography work has been slowed down drastically. I hope you all can understand.
