Yosemite Flood

Yosemite National Park is being evacuated today due to the risk of flooding from an #atmosphericriver with only emergency personnel allowed to stay.

The same thing happened twenty years ago (almost to the day) after one of the largest floods in modern history. Our founder Rich Seiling was one of the few allowed to stay so he could photograph the damage for the National Park Service archives. The tale of the 1997 flood and Seiling’s experiences were documented in Calumet’s Newsletter for Photographic Artists by Richard Newman, which we’re sharing in these pictures.
