Yosemite – part one – just a taste




It’s been three years since I visited Yosemite National Park. Last time the temperature was in the mid 70s and everybody was in shorts and tank tops in February. So this time I wanted to see some snow. But the probability wasn’t very high.


But I decided I would have a good time regardless. Yosemite contains so much magnificent scenery it’s hard to look in any direction without being overwhelmed.


This was another Sierra Club trip sponsored by the West LA Group. We left West Los Angeles around 6:40 Friday morning.


My friend SB came along as my roommate. These shots are all as we arrived in the park late afternoon. Yosemite is about 280 miles (450km) from West LA. We made a few pit stops and a picnic stop on the way. It was a gorgeous California day. yosemite

There’s nothing like being on the road in the comfort of a motor coach. I used to love to drive around California in my own car, but no more. I prefer to leave the driving to the professionals!yosemite


I’ll be posting more photos later. We had four beautiful days, and yes, including SNOW!

I am an explorer and creative person. I've had many jobs, careers and interests... everything in life and the universe fascinates me. Born in Brighton, England, I've lived my entire adult life in Los Angeles, California. A few years ago I rediscovered photography which is a great excuse to get outside and look. I'm also in the process of re-writing some of my unpublished short stories and possibly a novel. .

  1. Stunningly beautiful pictures, RMW, I’ll be looking forward to seeing the rest whenever you post them!


  2. Gosh what a really beautiful place. Thank you for sharing.x


  3. Your photographs are stunning, Roslyn! It looks like it was the perfect day. I’m with you, I’d rather be driven around, too. Thanks for sharing with us!


  4. Been down to California quite a few times, but never seemed to think of going here. Oh, well. I am not dead yet!


    • Yosemite should be on everybody’s bucket list. I love visiting National Parks. Each one is so different. And Yosemite Valley is easy to get around by shuttle bus if you’re not into walking or hiking (not suggesting this is you, just mentioning it!).
