Yosemite

Last week we drove up to Yosemite National Park. We live about an hour and a half away. Always an amazing adventure filled with sight after sight of stunning natural beauty. Actually, I’d say “beauty” is absolutely putting it mildly. Like… seriously mildly.

Half-Dome in the distance; El Capitan on the left a bit closer. Yes, there was still snow.
Pretty sure this is Horsetail Falls.
Driving thru the Valley, we are surrounded by gorgeous huge trees and mountains.
Horsetail Falls from another angle. Also, notice the pillar of rock rising up from the face of this massive granite mountain. You can see its shadow.
The sun was setting as we drove down from the mountains.
Cell tower and trees. Fuzzy because, well… phone camera and moving vehicle.
And the full moon was rising in the east.

  1. majestic scenes, Ed: no wonder your heart was uplifted 🙂

  2. Lovely images 👌

  3. beautiful!

  4. We spent a lot of time at Sequoia National Park when I was stationed at Lemoore Naval Air Station, and made it to Yosemite several times. The beauty of California can’t be overstated.

    • I agree, Will. We are planning to drive up to Sequoia within the next few weeks. The trees are stunningly huge!

  5. I’m pleased you could get out there to bring back these enticing shots

    • Thank you, Derrick! It was a wonderful day… has taken a few days to recover, though. 😉

  6. That’s some beautiful country up there! I am following you, but I never get a notification of new uploads. I can’t figure out why, sorry. Not your fault.

    • LOL. Maybe when I post something I can dispatch a carrier pigeon to Las Vegas?

      • I love birds! 🤪😂

      • Yes, I have noticed that about you. I like birds, too!

  7. Stunning beauty. Thanks for sharing this!

    • You’re welcome, Jeff! This is our Father’s world!

  8. Boromax,

    What a blessing to be so close. Thank the Lord for all the wonderful things in our backyard.

    • Thanks, Gary. It is a true blessing to be so close to such places; and we all have beauty to enjoy in our own backyards. ~Ed.

  9. Wow. I live maybe an hour further away in Modesto, We’ve actually gone to the Ahwanee Hotel just for lunch and a short stroll through the grounds. 🙂 It is such a blessing to have it nearby. One of the neatest trips was on a rainy day. Good smells from wet conifer duff. 🙂 I assume you have your “Golden Age” passport and are able to get in free, right?

    • Yes, we do. It is a great thing, that pass. We need to head over to Yellowstone and Glacier and others to take fuller advantage of it!
