We spent five incredible days in Yosemite Valley this past week. We visited the Tunnel View vista at least once a day while we were there. No two visits were remotely similar. Most of the week was either overcast or cloudy or raining but on Friday, our last day there, by sunset, most of the clouds had given way to clear skies but because of the rain earlier in the week and the smattering of snow Thursday night, the valley included a dense layer of low clouds, almost like the Sacramento Valley’s tule fog. The clouds follow the Merced River and hovered in the midst of the trees almost like a river of clouds.
Farewell, Yosemite. I look forward to seeing you again soon.
