This is the day we set aside to visit Mariposa Grove. After our usual breakfast, we headed to the camp to pick up Maria and Kathy to accompany us. The drive to the grove took close to an hour, longer than it would have taken if we didn’t stop, but we stopped often to photograph various highlights, including a panaromic view (also known as the Tunnel View, when the photo is taken upon exiting a tunnel on the highway) of El Capitan, Half Dome, Bridal Veil Falls, and much of Yosemite Valley. We also saw Horse Tail Falls. One of the things I’d hoped to see in Yosemite was climbers going up the sheer granite valley walls. At one point, we actually saw six climbers going up El Capitan. Binoculars were needed to verify the number. When we saw them, they were just beginning their climb.
