Looking around Yosemite Valley.

Half Dome as viewed at the campground entrance.

Viewing Half Dome (from the side) from Glacier Point.
Glacier Point is 7214 ft above sea level, Half Dome is 8836 ft.
Glacier Point is about 45 minute drive from the campground.
Unfortunately, they have "controlled fires" creating a poor view.

This squirrel wanted to get it's picture taken.

After the squirrel left Mom was able to sit.

This is behind Half Dome. That is Nevada Falls in the center and smoke from one of the "controlled fires" in the top right.

The viewing platform at Glacier Point.
Yosemite Falls (dry) is on the far right. (notice the water stain)
Our motor home was visible looking straight down. We had one of the few sites which had an opening in the trees.

Half Dome on a clear day.
