Description

California's snowpack, a critical resource for the state's water supply, is at a record low at just 5 percent of normal levels. These images from Yosemite's Half Dome show the drastic impacts of the California drought. Just four years ago, the nearly 9,000 foot tall granite dome was covered in snow. Today, it is virtually bare. These images are from the Yosemite Conservancy webcam: http://www.yosemiteconservancy.org/
