Ahwahnee Hotel...in Black and White...



Ahwahnee Hotel, Yosemite Valley, California

"Yosemite Valley, to me, is always a sunrise, a glitter of green and gold
wonder in a vast edifice of stone and space."
Ansel Adams

  1. A great shot, Kathryn, of the gracious inn. Just returned from a few days in the Valley, we were surprised to find water in Yosemite Falls.

  2. Thanks MarthaZ!!! When I was there in July, the water was pounding down so I'm not surprised...I think there'll be water until it snows again!!!

  4. A great place to visit, I have a number of shots from here and on the other side through Lee Vining and Bodie. Adams picked a good spot for his iconic shots.

  8. Thank you Merike!!! Yes..definitely native American... according to my references it means something to the effect of "the people of the big mouth"!!! I'm assuming the mouth is in reference to the big valley floor!!!

    Thank you Lady Fi!!!
