Yosemite/Mammoth Lakes Vacation

We are off on our annual September vacation. The hubby earned some travel bucks to fund us again this year. So thankful for that perk of his job. We chose Yosemite, despite the recent rim fire. Our hotel of choice, actually a Bed and Breakfast, experienced smoke damage so at the last minute we had to change our lodging plans. We are staying sooooo far away from the park.

El Capitan. It was huge and beautiful.

Yosemite was very dry, and we haven't seen any wildlife, except for the one very friendly doe.

This little girl was used to being fed. She walked up within three feet of us hoping for a snack.

...and a few pictures of the awesome running trail I went on this morning in Mammoth Lakes.


That was a nice treat, although I wasn't use to the incline nor the altitude.

was it crowded? it looks like you have the place to yourself! I grew up in the bay area and miss the mountains of Tahoe and Yosemite from our summer trips.

It really isn't too bad as far as crowds go and I think today will be even better since it is a week day. Mammoth lakes isn't bad either. Today we are heading back into the park.
