Travel Photo Friday - In the Wilderness of Yosemite

Today's Travel Photo Friday not only features a beautiful photo, but also a great story. It was taken by travel blogger and budding photographer Lane Billings, so let's find out more...

The image was captured at Yosemite National Park. We had sold our house in Los Angeles but couldn't close on our new home in Santa Fe, New Mexico for nearly a month. What to do with the time? Road trip! We said "good-bye" to California by covering much of the coast and northern parts in three and a half weeks. It was just after Christmas and we nearly got stuck - twice - in snowbound Yosemite. Freezing, numb hands and running noses didn't damper the majestic scenes of this forest.

Bonus tip: There are NO crowds in Yosemite in the middle of winter.

What a fantastic photo, and a great story too! Thanks Lane, and if you want to read more about her travels visit www.thelostbackpack.com. I'm always looking for contributors for this feature, so if you have a travel photo you'd like to share, just send it to me using the email address on my contact page, and include a short paragraph about where it was taken. Thanks in advance for your contributions.
