Exploring Yosemite’s backcountry

Scot Miller, one of the photographers of First Light: Five Photographers Explore Yosemite’s Wilderness, sent over videos he posted on YouTube of the trips they took into the backcountry. The first video below has some gorgeous footage of the hidden side of Yosemite, replete with lush forests and towering granite vistas. The second video is a short film of a coyote’s early morning call.

The Yosemite Fund commissioned the five photographers to capture the beauty of the wilds of Yosemite over five summers—for a photographer and nature lover, that’s got to rank as one of the best gigs imaginable.
