Fall Sunrise in Yosemite Valley

I grew up spending a week each summer in Yosemite valley. It is such a special place for everyone that visits. I've found my favorite time to explore the valley is early in the morning, before most are out. When the first light touches El Capitan, it is magical. It was 23 degrees on this particular morning. Smoke from the nearby California fires started to arrive and created temporary clouds that danced in the sky.
