We left Mono Lake and headed West into Yosemite National Park. It was beautiful – there was still some snow on the ground and the air was crisp. All the lakes were crystal clear.
We got our first view of Half Dome from Olmsted Point.
The road into the Valley was very steep and curvy. We stopped to take a look and give the brakes an opportunity to cool down. The view was breathtaking – at first you don’t even see the Falls far in the distance.
By the end of the day, we had spent a couple of hours just walking around Yosemite Valley. It would have been nice to have more time but we got a nice feel for the beauty of the Park.
Watch for future posts with more pictures ….
