13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Snowshoeing to Dewey Point

This photo captures my friends as we set off on the trail to Dewey Point in Yosemite National Park. Yosemite is a four-season playground and in the early spring, it will often get fresh snow and then be followed by days with bluebird skies and more mild temperatures. Getting out and exploring amazing natural wonders like Yosemite is a core component of life in the American West.
