    Smile Yosemite: July 2010

    Hi everyone,
    Here's some pictures from my recent trip to Yosemite with two of my friends. Hope you enjoy them!

    We stayed at Housekeeping Camp in a river unit for 5 nights - Sunday through Friday.





    Our 3 rafts...only one survived the trip. The lone survivor was the one that had a puncture hole too!



    If you walked about 500 feet, you could see Half Dome



    Near out site, there was a little path way that would take you on a trail by
    the Merced river:



    The trail:



    From our camp:



    Another picture of the river:



    After an hour...I finally got the fire started! Woohoo!



    We visited Happy Isles on the 3rd day:











    One of the tails...to the "Marsh" where there was nothing.



    Back onto the shuttle!



    Half Dome at sunset from our camp:





    Upper and Lower Yosemite Falls:



    To the left of us:









    Half Dome heading out of the park:



    Hope you liked the pictures...happy trails!

    Re: Yosemite: July 2010

    i stayed in those places the last time i went!!

    i remember we had like the perfect place, cause it was literally 29 steps away from the river (yeah we counted) and we could see the yosemite falls and half dome right at our camp. then i remember one night we were star gazing and hearing the falls reminded me so much of GRR falls at night

    I have stayed in every place you can in Yosemite, including the Ahwahnee Hotel and IMHO housekeeping is the best (if you can handle semi roughing it).

    Gosh, what memories come back to me. I haven't been to Yosemite in 40 years, but I can still feel the ice cold water of the Merced River, brrrrr. I miss the FireFalls at night from Camp Curry. I'd give anything to go back and visit again.

    Awesome photos! My cousin and his family go there as often as possible but I have never had the chance to go with them.

    It really is a beautiful place. I was never around to see the firefall, but I heard it was beautiful. It's too bad that all they don't do it anymore.
