Our first visit to Yosemite made us ask why we waited so long to visit one of nature's wonders, and hardly more than a six hour drive from our home.
This album follows the time sequence of our trip, beginning with the strange, to us, plants along route 41 between Oakhurst and Fish Camp, CA, to the lodge, and then to the giant Sequoia forest on the afternoon of our arrival.
Entry to the park's south entrance was easy, only 2 1/2 miles from the Tenaya Lodge in Fish Camp, and on excellent roads.
The second day we entered again at the south entrance, drove through Wawona and into the Yosemite Valley. On our return trip we took the Glacier Point turnoff for a 16 mile trip to about 8000 feet and the most spectacular views of our trip.

The last image of the park is a panaromic view taken from Glacier Point, composed of three images stitched together to better demonstrate the wonderful vista. To view, click on "original" at the bottom of the enlargement and use the scroll bar to move to the sides and top/bottom.
