    OK, now I have to go to Yosemite. Nice shots!

    If your in southern cali, check out Fraiser Mill campground in the mountain home state forest. Its near Springville, ca. You will enjoy that spot. great for hanging.
    Because you fall through the clouds if you try to lay on them, so the next best thing is a hammock.

    Be there next week, thanks for the preview! Camping in Nelder Grove outside the park with my boys, Father-in-law and nephews; day trips into the park.

    Word to the wise - never underestimate the power of the falls. Two physicians from my town were tragically killed last week crossing a footbridge that was being topped by the swelling falls.

    +1 to that Lizzie. The falls are roaring. These were from 6/26 & 6/27

    Just watched the news report, thanks for posting that Lizzie. What a shame. I'd be interested to figure out which bridge and how it looked for my own future safety reference.

    Body, as I recall reading it was the bridge at lower Wapama Falls which drains into Hetch Hetchy. We camped near upper Wapama Falla over Memorial Day weekend.
