Yosemite in the rain and snow by Barbara Edwards

IMG_0082I had to remind myself that Yosemite wasn’t the object of our trip, but a bonus.

It’s raining this morning and 42 degrees.



With snow predicted for tonight we have a debate about leaving. We talked to the volunteers at th ranger station and they claim it will be above 6 thousand fee, and the camp-ground is four.

IMG_0114Bill says let’s try the roads. He doesn’t mind driving in the rain. So. We head out for Bridal-veil Falls first and the






IMG_0098Wamona tunnel first. We’re half-way to Yosemite Valley and it is snowing. What to do?




We visited Bridal-veil Falls, walked to the base in the rain, Yosemite Village with its odd traffic pattern,


El Capitain and looked up into the rain to see the top, Yosemite Falls from the road turn-off and turned up Route 120. IMG_0092





Oops. Big mistake. We got turned back by the Park Rangers because we needed chains to get through the building snow. Taking 140 West to exit the park.
