Sometime ago there was discussion of adult trees near the Tunnel View lookout into Yosemite being cut back. I had heard there would be public hearings to discuss the matter, but apparently that time has come and gone with minimal public notice. Mid-March the trees were removed. YosemiteDonn has posted a recent photo of the view less the trees on Flickr. The decision to remove these trees was a really bad call in my opinion. I am saddened to hear and see the news of their removal.
Below are a couple of my favorite photos of this view point with the old growth trees.
