No Footprints! - Yosemite Valley Chapel - Yosemite NP - California

It started snowing while we were at dinner the night before this image was taken. I knew it would be an early morning if I wanted to get the photo without any footprints. It was still dark when I went out, but I had several problems. The snow was easy to clear off, however getting doors to open was another matter. Eventually we got in and headed over to the nearby parking area.There were probably 20 -30 photographers at Tunnel View, but to my amazement we were first to the Chapel that morning. We were careful to not get to close or to ruin it for those that came after us. We semi-circled and got different perspectives and as we were finishing up at the backside a group of three younger photographers marched right through. I was so glad we were there early!

Is that a chapel / church?

Yes, that's exactly what it is. They conduct regular services and weddings all the time.
