18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Yosemite Valley From Glacier Point

Photo of Yosemite Valley from Glacier Point. In the midst of a drought and wildfire making the photo very hazy. The smoke was from the Blue Jay fire that had been burning for a while and not the fire that broke out two days later near Mariposa Grove. The smoke from that one actually closed the valley one week after this photo was taken. The valley being orange was very depressing as we left.
