Long Description:
This AA photo was included in his Portfolio 2, published in 1950. The location is now a small picnic area off of the main road in the park. A picnic table is in the way, but can be cropped out of the composition if you position yourself carefully. The naturally balanced rock in the original photo was knocked off its mount sometime in the last 70 years. Too bad, it added a nice feature to the scene.
Visit Instructions:

Post your picture you take at the location, but there's no need to post Ansel's image again.
