To celebrate the broadcast premiere of PBS Nature’s Yosemite on Wednesday, March 29 on KQED 9, we asked our social media fans to delve into their travel photos and show us their snapshots taken at Yosemite National Park. And they did not disappoint.

Scroll down to enjoy just some of the many, many beautiful photographs we received via the #YosemiteSnap hashtag. Many thanks to all those who contributed to this collective picture of our awesome national park!

From @girlseestheworld, via Instagram. '"All glory comes from daring to begin." -Ruskin Bond Before reaching the cables on Half Dome, there's a steep climb up sub dome with many switchbacks. At the top of the sub dome, I was already tired and breathless. The views were amazing. To reach the top of Half Dome, there's another 800 feet of rock waiting for you.'

From @chrislabasco, via Instagram. "Due to the heavy rains that California had experienced this last winter, much of Yosemite Valley had areas that were flooded. Although it made it difficult to navigate through parts of the park, it also created unique opportunities for one-of-a-kind reflection shots. This photograph is of Half Dome and its reflection taken from the flooded valley and walkway on Southside Drive, just before The Majestic Yosemite Hotel."

The milky Yosemite Falls on the left gives the hike its name, as you get a perfect view of the waterfall on the way up, and a breathtaking view out over the valley at the top. Next year, I hope to make a trip out in February to get a shot of the annual "firefall" ???? For now, I have "strawberry-dome" ????"
