I just have to take pictures of tunnels. Here is one on Hwy 395.

Pick up the kids (our two chihuahuas) and head for home. Back to our own bed!

Up early, down for one final breakfast at the hotel, checked out of our suite and loaded the car and off to pick up our pups. On the road towards home about 8am, well ahead of schedule.

We had taken the Tioga Pass route once before going from home to Reno, but this time we are doing it in reverse. So from Reno we took Hwy 395 south through Carson City, a several smaller towns, for 135 miles to Mono Lake and Lee Vining. At Lee Vining we make a right turn and head up into the mountains and the eastern entrance to Yosemite National Park.

Up near the summit we stopped to take a couple of pictures of the trout in the stream. For all of you fishermen, seeing the fish in the stream is not a normal thing (at least where I come from), so it’s amazing to count the fish in the stream!

Great Shots, Roger! We were there a few weeks after you, by then the waterfalls had gotten a lot smaller.
I hope someday I can spend a week here hiking
