Yosemite February 2017 Instagram Monthly Review

This is the Yosemite February 2017 Instagram Monthly Review. Yosemite National Park was inundated with winter storms throughout the month of February causing major damage to two main roadways leading into the park on Highway 41 and inside the park on Big Oak Flat Road from Highway 120. Highway 41 repairs are ongoing with delays into Yosemite. Highway 120 currently has no access into Yosemite Valley. Make sure to contact Yosemite National Park for updated road conditions before visiting. Upon arriving in Yosemite Valley, visitors were greeted with snow covered cliffs and booming waterfalls throughout the month of February. As a result we were able to capture many majestic scenes including Half Dome and Yosemite Falls. Water saturated the meadows of Yosemite Valley, and I was able to capture several reflection shots.

Here are the most liked photos from the YExplore Yosemite February 2017 Instagram page with over 225 likes. They were all taken on Guided YExplore Yosemite Tours. There are several more daily images from Yosemite on our feed and now have 2608 followers. Please follow and share with other IGers to help us build our Instagram audience @yexplore.
