The above 360 was captured on the side of CA Hwy 120, outside of Yosemite, on the way to Lee Vining, and not too far from the gate. (Sorry for the wordy location remarks. All of my images are geotagged with GPS coord’s but I have not found an efficient nor practical way to share that with you within WordPress.) There are at least two waterfalls, that i could see, in the ravine. There was access into the valley at the bottom of the hill. Again, we needed more time to explore!
Above is my favorite view of the South Tufa at Lake Mono. It is highly accessible and anyone can get to this particular spot. I just liked it because of the way the tufa close in around you. Unfortunately, you can see a lot of erosion caused by selfish and irresponsible people — it is a shame. The park service charges $3 per adult to enter but that’s not going to help repair broken tufa. :cry:
This last one is something of a joke: “Beware the sleeping bears!” ;) But I really wanted to capture the feel of our Camp Curry tent cabin. In hindsight, I should have done another 360 to show the outside and the rest of Camp Curry… next time. It was very comfortable. Bedding and extra blankets are provided. Each tent cabin has its own bear safe food locker. There is electricity wired up: you can plug-in to recharge or run your geek gear. Toilets and showers are separated and communal (just like kid time summer camp). :) It is not the cheapest way to camp in Yosemite Valley but it was convenient and a nice compromise.
