    I have been on an amazing 2 week adventure. I was traveling the Midwest plus NY State and D.C last week, now this week San Francisco, Yosemite and Lake Tahoe. Yesterday I was in Yosemite Nation Park. I left Tahoe around 6:30am. The drive was wonderful. I took 395 to 108, if you have never had the pleasure of driving 108 through Stanislaus National Forest you are missing out. It’s a 2 lane road through some of the best country you can ever imagine topping out at around 9,000 feet. So I finally arrived at Yosemite and began to shoot at noon. About midway through the day I started talking to another photographer and he told me about the Moonbow that would be happing around 10 and only happens a couple times a year. I was going to shoot some night photos anyways, so I arrived at the spot about 9 to get set up. About 10 you could see a little corner of the rainbow, it took until around midnight before it was really clear and it was worth the wait! I ended with the Moonbow shots and then drove back out the 2 lane road I came in on. I can’t wait to get back. I only started to scratch the surface of that beautiful National Park!
