birds eye view of half dome

four of us with half dome in backround

Looking out at the mountains


Well the second day we drove the 21 miles to get into the park and then proceeded to drive another 110 miles just in the park as we went to Glacier Point, this is a view from the top of the mountain over looking the valley and all the the falls as well as half dome. The drive was difficult as it was all up and down, we would drop to 100 feet and then raise to 5000 and drop again. The views from Glacier were great, this side of the park was not quite as crowded but again all parking spaces were taken and you had to circle and wait for someone to pull out. The views were awesome.

Well tomorrow is moving day to the redwoods of California, moving to the northern coast, and will be among the tall trees.

Only trouble is that we have to go down that steep hill, engine brake will get a work out. Cindy is going to drive the car down so I don't have to tow it down and have that weight pushing me down the mountain.

Maybe she will take some pictures on the way down.
