Milky Way Over the Tuolumne River

It's no secret how much I love Yosemite. Because of my work leading teens on wilderness trips I have had the opportunity to visit the park dozens of times. On this trip, long after the students were snuggled in their tents and my co-leaders were on watch - I hiked out into the dark night seeking scenes like this to shoot. The Milky Way was plainly visible and the Tuolumne River flowed gently and clear which allowed me to light it with my headlamp, illuminating the submerged river rocks.
