Wawona Tunnel is the longest highway tunnel in the state of California (length is 4,233 ft). It is one of three main roads which provide access to Yosemite Valley. The tunnel exits to one of the most stunning and most photographed views of Yosemite.

Earlier this week I decided to take a trip to Sequoia National Park in California. I grew up close to both Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks and visited both parks several times a year. I picked a day in which the weather was unfortunately not the best for driving. But I was able to capture a this shot (edited with Lightroom CC).

Grant's Grove is host to a large grove of Giant Sequoias and each year millions of visitors from all over the world travel to see one of natures true wonders.

I was pleased to get this result at our local country club on 4th of July 2015. The reflection of the fireworks and the remnants of the sunset behind give it such an awesome affect! I will have to search down the EXIF, can't believe it isn't attached to the image! UGH

On a busy visitor day no one was to be seen in this section of the Harpers Ferry National Park. The scene reminded me of a Hopper painting.

Snooper's Rock, Chattanooga, TN, at Sunrise with my gracious guide's trail dog, Ella. This is located in Prentice Cooper State Park. The heavy fog bank is hovering above the winding Tennessee River.

Rock City near Chattanooga- Lover's Leap. I wasn't sure if they would allow tripods or not, so I chose not to take one. I wish I would have taken one, this would have came out much better.

Vancouver Island is patchy at best when it comes to our once lush gorgeous rainforest. More in town cougar sightings and bear encounters points to a lack of habitat or habitable areas for them.

We cut down their forest and kill them when they are forced into our space. Something wrong with that.

Attaching the wide view of this same shot. I didn't want to post basically the same photo twice.

The gorgeous Alberta Falls, just outside of Estes Park in the Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. It's about a half hour to 45 minute hike over fairly easy terrain, and it's so worth it.
