My Brief Trip To Yosemite!

Sunrise at Yosemite

My shortened trip was productive anyway. I found some interesting details on the early park. I re-visited the Pioneer Cemetery and, outside the park, visited the home of John Muir.

Albert Bierstadt – Artist (1830-1902)

Albert Bierstadt paintings from the mid to late 19th century of Yosemite are the most recognized of all the artists of this medium. He was born January 1830 and passed away in 1902. His many paintings of Yosemite and Hetch Hetchy Valleys are just a small fraction of his body of work which are estimated to be between 400 and 500, but some say many thousands, of paintings.
