Yosemite Valley Visitor Center- The Place Begin I recently had the honor to stay and work in Yosemite Valley for several weeks. My task was to assist visitors by answering questions.

I spent many hours going threw all the footage that the group & I shot, along with many more hours of time editing the footage & implementing special effects (beyond what I have done before), only for the project to crap out on me toward the end. I’m […]

Yosemite Hidden Secrets The Yosemite Valley Pioneer Cemetery While not exactly hidden and secret, the Yosemite Valley Pioneer Cemetery remained unknown to me even after several summer vacations spent in the valley.

I asked the person working at the desk for directions to the cemetery and was surprised to learn the it was just a short walk from where I was. I borrowed a copy of a cemetery map and guide […]
