Every year, as the light starts to turn from green to golden, a seasonal migration of itinerant climbers make their way to Yosemite Valley. They share campsites and meals, trick-or-treat with their kids in Ranger Village, put up new routes, and repeat favorites. Arriving as the crowds of summer start to thin, they are a community that will be here together until the snow starts to fall and the migration moves onward. These are glimpses of what it looked like in the autumn of last year.
