Fresno Bee photographer John Walker, on assignment Thursday in Yosemite National Park, saw what many don’t.

The park is one of the most-visited in the U.S.but 75 percent of those visitors arrive between May and October, according to the National Park Service.

Sure, the park’s high country is hunkering down – both Tioga and Glacier Point roads are closed for the season.

But there’s plenty to see in Yosemite Valley, from wildlife to spectacular late-fall foliage.
