Yosemite – The California Move (Day 5)

Our fifth day began with a drive from the Mammoth Lakes ski resort where we relaxed the night before to the compelling Mono Lake in Lee Vining, CA. This mysterious sky was our introduction to a beautiful land.

Tioga Pass Road

There was a rescue helicopter making passes in this valley along the Tioga pass road. After a year in Colorado we were very familiar with these roads and we were hoping the copter was only there for training and not to fetch some poor souls who were not as familiar with these types of drives.

Near Tenaya Lake

After having seen 3 other national parks along our drive I think we began to experience a little NP fatigue. Couple that with our mutual disdain for crowds and traffic, then Yosemite becomes a bit of a pain in the culo. We did manage to grab a few shots and enjoy what we saw of the park yet we jetted through because we knew we would return here one day (not just after labor day)

The Back of Half Dome – Olmstead Point

Likely the most famous of Yosemite’s rock formations, Half Dome, viewed from the back at the stunning Olmstead Point.

More Cool Rocks and Clouds

The mysterious clouds stayed with us on this day as we lit out for our final few hours to the Bar Area and our new home in Palo Alto.

Windmills Near the East Bay

Juliet nabbed this shot as I white knuckle drove through the Bay Area traffic getting closer to home. We were likely at 75 mph when she got this shot and our filthy oily windshield makes the goofy aurora on the bottom right of the shot.
