I’ve gone to Yosemite three times now (2012, 2014, and 2015), and feel very lucky, because it’s a beautiful place. The only real downside of it is its popularity, making it feel, half the time, more like Disneyland than a national park. But if the people drive you nuts, that’s all the more reason to get out on the hard trails! On this trip we even did the famous Half Dome hike (photos of which will be posted separately). We also got to see a lot of wildlife–although no bears, which was odd. If you like what you see here (a Stellar’s Jay on the fence by the pool, Mirror Lake, a bobcat spotted by Yosemite Lodge, and the view of a valley at dusk), check out the rest of the album.
