Yosemite Conservancy Field Notes

A selection of photos submitted for Yosemite Conservancy's "Yosemite Moments" contest, featuring park fans' favorite snapshots of Half Dome, El Capitan, Yosemite Falls and more.
When we asked you to share your favorite Yosemite moments with us, you gave us a glimpse into the places, people and experiences in the park that have stuck with you. We're delighted to highlight a handful of those moments here, and hope they inspire all our readers to find new ways to connect with the natural world.
