18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Wildfire Near Mariposa Grove (Yosemite)

A wildfire broke out overnight where we were scheduled to hike. Didn't realize how bad it was until we arrived. Our family, including an 8 and 5 year old, still did 10 miles this day! Ash fell around us and we saw a few helicopters. Definitely put a damper on photos, as you can see in this one and the fawn one.
