Summer solstice in Tuloumne Meadows, 6/21/14

I have lived every summer in this tent since 1984 and on the Summer solstice the sun rises at 6am through a break in the trees. From now on the sun will move lower and right from this view getting blocked by the trees. When i first moved in the trees were MUCH smaller and the sun shone from early morning till 10 or so. They have since grown several feet.
