September 10,2011; Yosemite National Park

Since check out time at the campground was noon, we took a quick hike then headed for the valley.

While getting ready for the hike, we ran across this old school teardrop.

Tuolumne Meadows, the high country of Yosemite.

Parsons Lodge was built in 1915 for use by the Sierra Club.

Tenaya Lake

It's beautiful country, but you can get in trouble if you're careless.

A rockslide occurred while we hiked the Yosemite Falls Trail. The National Park Service closed it as a precaution.  Luckily we missed it.

We went from triple digit temperatures in the desert to 50 degrees in Yosemite.
