T+L Reports: Go West, Young Man

In 1916, a teenage Ansel Adams arrived at California's Yosemite National Park with a gift from his parents: a Box Brownie camera. The park that launched his career also became his lifelong passion. He documented it over several decades and helped create its first visitors' center. Each year, 3 million people follow in his footsteps, lingering at the base of Yosemite Falls to listen to what Adams called the "hollow chant of falling waters." Thanks to a multimillion-dollar restoration, the park has 52 acres of new trails designed by landscape architect Lawrence Halprin. Can't head for the falls?Check out Adams's Yosemite photos at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston (www.mfa.org; Aug. 21–Dec. 31).
