Snow-Dusted Peaks, Yosemite National Park, California, 1985

Photograph by Jonathan Blair

A quiet pond reflects snow-dusted trees and granite outcrops of the Sierra Nevada in California’s Yosemite National Park. Solitude in Yosemite may seem like romantic nostalgia to its 3.5 million annual tourists. But opportunities to experience true wilderness are as plentiful and as varied as the park’s natural treasures.
