Yosemite Valley

Being late in the fall season, there were far fewer people in the Yosemite Valley and there was available space in the campgrounds that were still open.  It had been many years since we had spent time in the Yosemite Valley in the fall.  We were surprised at how late the color change was this year. 


This somewhat blurry shot taken out through the Jeep's windshield is an attempt to convey the fall color at the lower end of the valley floor.

The drought has reduced Bridalveil Fall to a trickle ...


... and totally dried up Yosemite Falls.

From our campsite, we could look up to Glacier Point 3,200 feet above us.



After driving up to Glacier Point, we discovered that we could spot our Lazy Daze motorhome in the campground.



As always, the view from Glacier Point is spectacular.
Note the complete lack of snow in the high country.



To our imaginations, this view of Half Dome from Olmstead Point looks like a baby eagle.



When coming back to the valley from Glacier Point, the sun was getting very low in the sky.

  1. Just really enjoying these beautiful photos, Art. Thanks for sharing your travels. So far the closest I've been to camping in Yosemite is the OS I loaded onto my laptop last week, ha. Happy trails, friends.
