This little feller was more interested in the goofy looking photographer than the waterfall.
Lunch at the Ahwahnee Hotel.
I wanted to take my wife there for dinner but they have a dress code which neither of us could meet the standards of so lunch was the best I could do for her. She didn't mind and I think she preferred this anyway.
Pulled pork sandwich for her and pulled pork tacos for me. We ended up trading for each liked the other better.
I had a dead squirrel picture but yesterday's dead bird bothered people so I'll pass on the squirrel photo. And you thought I had squirrel for lunch!
Getting off the established trails reveal wonderful scenes that otherwise you would miss, plus you have it all to yourself.
This is the road up to Mirror Lake. You cannot drive to it. You walk or ride your bike. The gradient is at 10% in places and this old fellow in the distance, huffing and puffing, is walking the diagonal trying to make it easier for himself. Good for him to do it but all I could think of was what if his heart gave out? What could I do? Things like this make me nervous.
That pretty much covers the worthwhile photos from Yosemite.
My wife got herself a new Nikon D7000 before this trip and she gave me her Nikon D90 insisting it took better pictures than the Nikon D80 I was using, which by the way I inherited from her also a few years back. I have to say that I think she is right. I'm not a picky picture person but comparing photos of the same subject taken with both cameras, there is a difference that even I can tell. Thanks dear. I'll get you that dinner at the Ahwahnee.
