Took a quick trip to Yosemite in mid-August. Yosemite is cool, but definitely not my favorite park. Spent some more time around Mono again also. Zac and I were there in June and the light and sky were much better so I'm not putting any Mono photos up this time around.
Did a pretty nice hike in the park up North Dome...still way too many people for my liking even though it was an 'unpopular' trail. I dunno, in my opinion, parts of Desolation Wilderness in the Sierra are just as great, if not greater, than Yosemite. Stayed far away from the Valley, with good reason. We had excellent weather, little cold at night but not too bad. No bears this time around, I always see bears at Yosemite. What's that about? (but that's okay, because I have seen 13 bears in 3 months...)
I'll put another post up of this Golden-manteld ground Squirrel. Pretty much too cute for his own good. I have a great one of him yawning, talking crazy talk. Good stuff. (Giant Sequoias above, their beautiful cones below) Scenic Sunday
