This was my first real visit to Yosemite, and 10 days wasn’t enough time to even begin to explore it!
And we were terribly limited….numerous roads and trails were still closed from one of the largest fires in California history that burned for months this summer in and around the park, AND two mountain passes used to reach eastern and southern sections of the park were already closed by snow!
Not complaining, mind you….this place is spellbinding every way you turn!
We drove into the park every day from the west, dropped about 3000 feet into the valley, spent the day awestruck by the massive sheer cliffs and numerous domes, then drove up and out in the dark.
The most interesting thing about the park for me was the way it changed from day to day, even hour to hour.
