On the way back to US 395 and then on to Death Valley.

The road heading east.
Like I said earlier, no shoulders or guardrails.


These rocks were left by the last glacier which passed through the area.
I'm not sure why the big one is not rolling down the hill!


Leaving Yosemite NP and heading down to US 395.

We are heading down to US 395.
