Yosemite's Half Dome

We recently camped in YosYosemite.Our Novato Tuesday Hikers group traditionally camps here along the Merced River in Yosemite National Park.

This year the snow pack from last winter's storms and the daytime snowmelt would cause the river to rise about 9:00 pm,  high enough to partially flood a section of the Housekeeping campgrounds.  Thank goodness it was not our area.  Some say that the snow pack is so high that Tioga pass may not open to traffic this year.

Half Dome is transformed as the sun sets. It is always spectacular if the sun shines.
