Mike made sure the night before that all he had to do was get dressed, go to the car and drive down to Yosemite Valley.
His first stop was the Cascade Falls picnic ground where he affixed camera to tripod for a shot of autumn trees. A short walk took him to the Merced River, low at this time of year with some nice reflections.
Next were some essential stops in Yosemite Valley itself: a) the grocery store for the morning’s New York Times, then b) Yosemite Lodge for a cinnamon roll and coffee, and the thawing-out of frozen fingers.
