Mount Ansel Adams is a peak in the Sierra Nevada of California. The mountain is on the boundary between Yosemite National Park and the Ansel Adams Wilderness (in the Sierra National Forest) and is at the head of the Lyell Fork of the Merced River, 0.8 miles (1.3 km) northeast of Foerster Peak and 1.3 miles (2.1 km) west-southwest of Electra Peak. It was named in 1985 for Ansel Adams, the preeminent landscape photographer, conservationist, and member of the Board of Directors of the Sierra Club, a role he maintained for 37 years.
