Yosemite Day 1 – Repost

Original post March 3, 2022

Where is Smokey the Bear when you need him? I guess since they legalized some things in California the contact high has him a little off his surveillance game.

I posted about the beginning of our California trip previously. Last September we were “Just Walkin Around” at the Golden Gate Bridge.

And here is our first day at Yosemite. We did a smokey tour of the iconic valley. You can barely make out Half Dome at the end of this video. Drought conditions led to fires throughout the area.

But it was still great. More to come from day two of our trip. And a lot less smoke.

Also, I’ve mixed in a few photos of a 2015 trip I took there with Susan. It was her first time at Yosemite. And she loved it.

At one point in the video you will see some hang gliders. They said it takes about 10 ‘weather assisted’ minutes to make it down to the valley floor. Nice.
