Exactly what you need to max out your Yosemite trip

This excellent app is ideal for use both before and while in Yosemite. It offers great organization and dead on advice by location, season and difficulty of terrain. Frye has a book by the same title and it too is very good, but when in the park, working to find as many opportunities as possible the app is the indispensable tool.

It contains a great deal of park information but also a wealth of precise info on how, when and why to shoot particular spots at a given time.

There is no other app like it and when combined with Google Earth you can really benefit from Frye's years of experience in the park to make the most of whatever time you have in any season.

Great Planning Tool

This is really a great tool from someone who really knows Yosemite. It made planning much easier. The only problem I ran into is that the app does not remember filter settings when you exit. If I've set my filter to winter months for a certain area, then leave the app to make note in another app, my filter is gone when I return. It's ok, I dug up an old pencil. It would be nice to have the settings remembered or better yet, a place within the app to make notes or bookmark a page.

Don't let these comments deter you though. You should have this app if planning a trip toYosemite.

Put at the top of your Yosemite Planning List

All I have to say is Wow! Anyone who is planning to do any photography in Yosemite who does not have this app in their pocket is simply going to miss something. A lot of somethings. And even if they find what they're looking for there' a good chance it will be the wrong time, wrong ;location or even wrong settings. I was amazed the degree of coverage I now have at my fingertips and completely confident it is delivered by someone who knows the park as well as anyone else on the planet. Just superb work! Thank you!
