Lone Jeffrey Pine

 

Location: The Lone Jeffrey Pine made famous by Ansel Adams is, sadly, no longer standing. There are other trees vying for the position. So far they haven't gotten to such a picturesque shape. Still, this place is well worth a visit to Sentinel Dome where it once stood.

37° 43' 23.40" N
119° 35' 00.17" W

Equipment: Equipment:  Canon EOS 1, 28-85mm lens and polarizing filter.  Velvia transparency film, ISO 50.

Digital imaging/manipulation:  Image scanned with Minolta Dimage Scan Multi PRO at 4800 dpi.  Emulsion artifact removed.

Notes: Well, the Lone Jeffrey Pine may be gone but you get a great view of the valley and Halfdome lights up at sunset. You leave Yosemite Valley and go south to Glacier Point Road. This is the way to Badger Pass Ski Area. The trailhead for Sentinal Dome is marked. If you want a shorter route than the trailhead, go east beyond the trailhead to about 37° 43' 10.47 N by 119° 34' 50.84" W. The road curves and there is a small dirt parking area. On the other side of the road is an old fire road that takes you to the base of Sentinel Dome. It's a good route for travel after dark. I presume the Park Service doesn't mind. Check a topo map before departure.
