We left Tucson last Monday stopping at Barstow CA after driving on parts of old historic Route 66. Clear skies, dry weather, in general great driving weather. We were able to visit a couple older buildings along Route 66 that had seen better days.
We encountered heavy rain as we drove into the park via the south gate and on our way to our hotel and the valley. The rain turned into a blessing as the falls were flowing and the sky had abundant clouds. The falls that had been dry during the summer came alive and stayed that way our entire stay. The clouds stayed for our first full day then petered out.
As we said earlier we were without adequate internet access until today so this is the beginning of our story of our stay in Yosemite National Park. This was our first visit here and we are already making plans for our return. This was also our first trip where we used the 1DsII that had been converted to infrared. We got some beautiful IR images that we'll be sharing in the coming days.
The images included in this post are all from the first day and we have several more days to share so stay tuned for the updates.
Thanks for letting us share and as always we welcome your comments.
