Ansel Easton Adams was a famous photographer who shot black and white images of the Sierra Nevada and Yosemite National Park in the early 1900’s. Part of the original Wilderness Act in 1964 as the Minarets Wilderness, after his death in 1984, the area was expanded and renamed in honor of Ansel Adams, well-known environmentalist and nature photographer.
