I visited Yosemite (and other places) with P&S in hand... (on the return trip to Australia from a year working in England) but didn't have an idea of it's significance in the world of B&W photography. I wasn't really into photography (developing the odd film/picture before we went) at the time but got back into it shortly afterwards and always wondered why I didn't take a SLR on our once in a lifetime trip...
Would like to go back one day, hire a car and just drive about. We drove from Vegas to SF via Death Valley/Seqouia/Yosemite but it was pretty rushed so I'd like to repeat some of that at a lesuriely pace. I'd head out into the countryside and see what I could find.
I'm sure there are other places I'd like to visit. Utah? with those rocks pillar/formations would be one. Guess I don't know much about the topography!
