A few days ago I mentioned that I went up to Yosemite for the day. You can read about it and view the photo here: Cathedral Rocks, Yosemite.
After meeting everybody, we headed over to Mirror Lake. I was going to hike the one mile with everybody else, but decided against it because it would take too long. Since I have my handicapped placard, I drove right up to Mirror Lake and waited for the group. I figured it would take them about 30-45 minutes to, so I walked the Mirror Lake loop.
Just as I got back to the van, I saw the group. I suggested a few spots so we walked the loop. We stopped along the loop so I could capture this.
After Mirror Lake we drove over to see Yosemite falls. I took my camera stuff but didn’t take any pictures because the lighting was really harsh for my tastes. Besides that, I have enough photos of Yosemite Falls since I just went there in February.
Since the light was getting harsh, we all went back to the room. Since I was up for the day, Alan invited me to tag along. I stayed for a few hours with Alan, his wife Sara and there daughter Rachel. Around 3PM I decided go back down to the valley to see what I could capture, make some dinner and drive up to Tunnel View with the group for sunset.
I thought I’d drive back to Mirror Lake since there was a variety of lighting situations.
Thought I’d re-visit this spot. I really prefer the first one because the shadow on the rock really bothers me.
I went back to the van and grabbed my backpacking stove and made a few hot dogs. I forgot the buns and mustard though!. After dinner I stopped briefly at ‘Valley View’ before driving up to Tunnel View.
Thanks for looking! 🙂
