Yosemite


We're off for the next week to Yosemite, National Park.  I made reservations soon after returning from our Great Plains Tour.  One cannot dilly-dally too long with Yosemite or you will not get a campsite.  As luck would have it, a low pressure system will move down from the upper Pacific coast bringing a chance of rain and lower temperatures for the week I selected.  But I always try to see the bright side of an otherwise dismal situation.  Hopefully the skies will be filled with dramatic clouds which would only improve upon this scene I photographed earlier this year in May.

  6. I was born not too far from Ansel Adams country. 70 miles to be exact. Rain, shine or snow this place is a vision. Enjoy.

  11. With that low pressure system, and risk of rain, there will not be too many people camping, this weekend...
