Favorite Yosemite Spots: El Capitan Meadow

As part of an ongoing series, we’ll feature the favorite places of Yosemite community members and park visitors. El Capitan Meadow in Yosemite Valley is a favorite spot of professional photographer William Neill, who has lived and worked in Yosemite. “One of my favorite locations in Yosemite is El Capitan Meadow. Yosemite’s high country wilderness is epically beautiful, but I don’t get out there as I once did when younger. However, this meadow is by the road, and accessible to thousands of visitors all year around. Over the past 35 years that I’ve lived in and around the park, I often stop for a short walk to gaze at the soaring cliffs of El Capitan and Cathedral Rocks, and wonder at the graceful oak trees. Favorite seasons are autumn and winter, especially when in the fog or fresh snow!”

  1. Can’t believe how quickly the weather changes in the park. I was out there only 4 weeks ago and it was sunny and warm. I shot a short film called “The Park” which hopefully captures just some of the beauty of this amazing place. Would love to go again and shoot it in winter.
