Family Trip to the Ansel Adams Wilderness

This past week, Michael and Matthew Adams took a short trip into the Ansel Adams Wilderness. They were joined by writer Robert Poole and photographer Peter Essick, who were both from National Geographic Magazine. On this trip, the exact GPS coordinates were found for Ansel's Banner Peak, Thousand Island Lake image. The weather was pleasantly balmy in spite of the elevation, and the late snowmelt this year nurtured a healthy crop of mosquitoes!
For the curious, here are the coordinates:
37N 43.640, 119W 10.806!
