Yosemite National Park – Photo Blog

There is so much to see in Yosemite, we didn’t spend nearly enough time there, even with Mirror Lake and most of the falls being dried up (normal, by this time of year, though with the drought they had apparently dried up earlier than usual). I’ve selected just a few photos, because the web is already rife with better ones. The enormous granite cliffs, the wildlife, the amazing trees… I couldn’t capture the half of it.

Entering Tuolumne Grove, Yosemite | www.kayoz.com
One mile down from the road, probably another mile walking (up and down) around the grove, and then a final mile up, up, up, back to the car. This trail took us a LOT longer than we expected from the “one mile” information on the trail guide!
