My first visit to Yosemite National Park took place this week. Left on Tuesday, it’s a 4 hour drive to Oakhurst a small community just south of Yosemite where we stayed. On Wednesday the first big snow storm for Yosemite hit making the highway into Yosemite not passable without chains and a lot of caution. We waited 1 day and headed out very slowly on Thursday up the mountain road. We got as far as what is called the ‘Tunnel Lookout’ where the first photo was taken of Carol and Beedie (myself).
The 2nd photo is of a very hungry coyote who kept following my car. He’d obviously been fed before by tourists but we knew better. It is my understanding that the friendlier wild animals become the more likely they are to attack so we didn’t get out of the car. The last photo was taken by Carol of you know who – ME! I’ll post more Yosemite in the winter shots later in the week. Enjoy and don’t forget to click to enlarge for better viewing!
