Jeffrey Pine atop Sentinel Dome

Yosemite National Park, California, 2012

An iconic Jeffrey pine once lived on Sentinel Dome.  Made famous, like much of Yosemite, by Ansel Adams, it was first photographed in the 1860's by Carleton Watkins, who was one of the first to use his photographs to effect the conservation of wild places.  That Jeffrey pine died during a severe drought in 1976 and then finally fell over in the summer of 2003, just a few months after I was able to see it upright for the first and only time.  The Jeffrey pine in this image, though, is alive and well.  My wife, Crystal, thinks it looks like an Ent.
