14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Hidden from View

Yosemite National Park is one of my favorite places and it's even more beautiful in the winter when everything is bathed with white snow. I drove into the park as a storm was dumping snow into the valley (which doesn't happen all that often due to its low elevation) and took a brief nap while I waited for the storm to clear. When it did, I was greeted with this beautiful view!
