|Yosemite Valley - Yosemite 2012|
|Burnt Area - Yosemite 2012|
Mike drove down to Yosemite Valley after his early morning meadow pix. As he descended the smoke from a controlled burn grew more pronounced: getting out of the truck at a pullout the smell was quite noticible.
But Mike wondered if all that haze would lead to an interesting view at the traditional Yosemite Valley viewpoint. So after reaching the valley floor he turned and went up there. Yes . . . interesting how the haze isolated the various geographical features of the valley.
