South Tufa at Dawn, October 2015.

NEW: Photos from California's Eastern Sierra and Yosemite, October 2015.

These are photos from my trip last year — and just in a nick of time, since we are going there again next month.

Check out next month's Tour of California's Eastern Sierra, and our tour for the Yosemite Conservancy.

I'm unsure if we have any space left, and we'd love to see you in any case. One runs right after the other, so if you're traveling to the area, you should do both.

Help me help you

I support my growing family through this website, as crazy as it might seem.

If you find this as helpful as a book you might have had to buy or a workshop you may have had to take, feel free to help me continue helping everyone.

If you've gotten your gear through one of my links or helped otherwise, you're family. It's great people like you who allow me to keep adding to this site full-time. Thanks!

If you haven't helped yet, please do, and consider helping me with a gift of $5.00.

The biggest help is when you use any of these links when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. It costs you nothing, and is this site's, and thus my family's, biggest source of support. eBay is always a gamble, but all the other places always have the best prices and service, which is why I've used them since before this website existed. I recommend them all personally.

Thanks for reading!

Ken
