Yosemite Park Day Trip Part 1
These pictures are only here due to a Meetup opportunity. When I started exploring photography, fell upon various local Meetup groups. A wonderful way to meet people with common interests and visit places you wouldn’t go on your own. Thankful I clicked “yes” and the adventure began! 80% chance of rain…not so bad, when it brings snow on passes–a great photo opportunity!
First snow visit for me in 2010 and very welcome!
Next, we came upon an area lost to fire. My first thought was that it was rich in fall colors…then I saw the devastation of land wrought by heat and fire. Still a bit of beauty left and hope future generations will enjoy.
The first “lookout” took my breath away! Mind you, I was here about 20 years ago, but appreciate so much more with camera in hand! There were multiple languages spoken in a small area and I believe we were all speaking the same–taking in the beauty and splendor of a majestic view!
Decided to break this post into two parts…the second will feature the Yosemite Valley and waterfalls. One thing I know for certain, will not let that much time pass before returning. Fortunate to be within a 4-hour drive–might be 3 and 1/2 hours–depends upon the driver!! At anyrate, will revisit much sooner rather than later!
