Yosemite looking west
Temperature to 63 degrees this afternoon mostly sunny. Well we had a nice day, the calm before the storm. In this first picture looking west you can see the clouds coming for tomorrow "weather". The granite is amazing in Yosemite National Park. 

Snow Capped
We drove Silver Sally into Yosemite National Park enjoying the day we had great time. In the picture 6 you can see the snow on the mountains and driving the roads there was plowed snow on the edges of the road above four thousand feet. Higher up there were places with snow in the open areas and you can see where the snow blowers carved thru drifted snow to clear the road.
Amazing Granite Face
We went up as far as Bridalveil Falls inside the park.

The Low Road
On our return I noticed this other road that we did not take, The Low Road, we took the high road. Actually that road is the road from the west and we had come on the road from the south in this area they are close together. The Low Road runs thru the middle of the picture.
