Time for Summer Pix!

While at Yosemite, I looked for opportunities to take advantage of unique lighting rather than simply add to the huge catalog of great photos of Half Dome, et al.  Of course, memorializing the trip was important for us.  What no photo reveals are the sheer scope and humbling scale of this park.  Ya gotta be there.  Ten days well spent for us, with many day trips including the Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point, upper Toulumne Valley & Hetch Hetchy.    The road to Hetch Hetchy gets so narrow in places that I had to fold the mirrors on my F-350 to squeeze through; yikes!  Our campsite was literally on the bank of the South Fork of the Toulumne River at Yosemite Lakes RV Resort, located about 5 miles from the western park gate on CA 120.  Big fun.

  2. These are nice pictures, but I want to see pictures of the campsite and camper. Nothing better than getting up in the morning and sitting outside with a good cup of coffee and beautiful view.

  4. Camper and camping.  There is no suffering allowed when we “camp” since our fifth wheel is 42′ long, has a dishwasher, motorized theater seating facing a 60″ surround sound TV, has dual vanities in the bathroom, and a walk around King-sized Trump hotel bed equipped with the famous 3″ Costco memory foam topper.  Here’s a shot of the trailer and a view from my camp chair at the park on the South Toulumne river.

    Only a 60” TV?! Now that is roughing it!

  6. Thanks, TW. I was camping myself this weekend and just got back to civilization (meaning having internet access). Looks wonderful!
