Photo: Sunset from a flooded Tuolumne Meadows over Lembert Dome and Mount Dana, Yosemite national park. June 23, 2011
Over the weekend I was on a short camping trip with my dad and brother. While I’ve taken trips with each of them individually in the last years, it’s probably been 10+ years since the 3 of us sat around a campfire together. Highway 120 to Tuolumne Meadows just opened last weekend, so we were some of the first to enjoy summer in Yosemite’s high country this year. The sky was cloudless and the sun was hot. Snow seems to be melting quite fast and the river are quite big at the moment. These first two photo’s show the current conditions of the meadow which is quite flooded at the moment. Mosquitoes still haven’t arrived in the high country, but were quite viscous at the campground.
It wasn’t really a photo trip for me so I didn’t shoot too much. Though I still managed to get myself up at 4:00 am on a couple days and go looking for images. Didn’t end up with anything interesting.
