Heed Mike's comments- but I am curious if you have more pictures of the plant itself? The leaves, etc.

The tree, Cornus nuttallii is all over Yosemite -- especially along Tioga Rd near White Wolf...oh, it is also known as the Common Dogwood, and birds love the berries. In certain species, the berries are edible and often made into jams packed with vitamin C; however, this particular species is not one of them.
