I never saw a wet valley like I did in May of 2017. I have, by no means, set the record for the number of times I’ve been to Yosemite. I am, by no means, a connoisseur of Yosemite Valley climatology. I know, by no means, all the landscapes there are to become familiar in the valley. Nevertheless, I was stunned by what I saw the weekend of May 7, 2017.
