Yosemite National Park has beautiful giant forests of trees, but unfortunately those trees have been threatened due to our recent string of warm winters. The beetle population, which is normally kept to normal populations by cold winters, has grown out of control due to warm temperatures. As the fog broke from Tunnel View, it exposed a smattering of trees that have been killed by the beetles.
