Yosemite Natl. Park, #2
Location: Yosemite Natl. Park, USAA day trip to see the "big trees". A ride up to Glacier Point and going back to a place where I was when I was a kid.
On the ride up to Giant Sequoia's as the sun is still rising. This is the Valley Outlook.
Two of the giant's locked together. They say these are the only two like this in the world.
Two Sequioa's are darkened out by the bright blue sky clouds.
Do you want to feel very small? Not talking about size here.
They don't cut into the trees like this anymore and haven't for years. Believe it or not, you can drive a pickup truck through this hole.
On the way back we stopped at Glacier Point. Wow!
Rach says a full dome next to the famous Half Dome.
Down below is Yosemite Valley. One mile across and seven miles deep.
Last full day in the park included lunch with a view at Tenaya Lake.
From the shoreline taking it all in. This day was amazing. The scene and the temp were just perfect.
You guys remember this? Truly was one of the best stops on the visit to the park. The crowds thinned and the views got better.
Looking back over the stream towards the acutal Meadow. Breathtaking.
