Yosemite



So this is what happens when you ask someone else to take your picture... even when you have it all set up :) oh well at least you can see a fairly good picture of Half dome. We decided to take a 9 hour side trip to Yosemite after Dinkey Creek camping. It was really beautiful just lots of windy roads! I do have to say that I was kinda sad about how commercial this beautiful park had become. There were thousands of people there. I told Brian it was like Disneyland for adult nature enthusiasts. Wonder what it was like when Ansel Adams first came and starting to capture it.... probably something like this.

We hiked half dome last year and it was insane. At the top when only one person is supposed to be going up and down at a time.. we had people coming up and down on the outside ropes. It was crazy and one of the scariest (because I"m scared of heights). I'm still mad though, on the way to half dome in the early morning there was this gorgeous fog resting on a field only a couple feet thick and the lighting was gorgeous but we had two cars full of people. I still wish I would have stopped to capture that moment.

Hope you guys had fun though seeing some waterfalls. Did you guys hike all the way up?
