Nearly thirty years ago, Keith S. Walklet traded a daily commute (from Connecticut to New York City) for the mountains of the Western U.S. Setting off with a camera and motorcycle, he explored the continental U.S. and Alaska. Three months and 18,000 miles later, he found himself in Ansel Adams’ playground, Yosemite Valley. Looking for food and shelter for the winter in a beautiful place he could photograph, Keith filled out an application to work for Yosemite Park & Curry Co. He expected to be travelling again in spring. Instead, fourteen years passed and he progressed from his entry-level position to one overseeing public relations and educational programs for Yosemite Concession Services.
