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. Originally part of the Wilderness Act in 1964, the area was known as the Minarets Wilderness. After his death in 1984, the wild land was expanded and renamed in honor of Ansel Adams, a well-known environmentalist and nature photographer.

Four topographic maps cover the Ansel Adams Area: USDA, Tom Harrison Maps, Wilderness Press & NatGeo Maps
