We drove in along 140 to avoid the snow
But had to deal with this detour around a major rockfall from 2 years ago
The rockfall on the right
It totally took out the highway, and this detour is a single lane across the river
Dave and Paige
We met Paige and Theresa at Curry Village, then headed out to Mirror Lake to take some photos and enjoy the sun
Our first glimpe of Half Dome along the trail
A zoomed look shows the snow blowing off the top
Basket Dome Reflection
Rock and reflection in the Merced
Half Dome looms above us
And Basket Dome is the prominent formation down the canyon

There is a bobcat in this picture
I promise - just left of center
These deer were only 100 feet away from him - they noticed the bobcat
Lower Yosemite Falls
Paige sets up her camera to photograph the falls.
Pools at the base of the falls
Lower yosemite falls and beer
Paige and Dave photograph the falls
Last shot of Yosemite Falls
Notice the cone of ice/snow at the base, formed by the spray
Our cabin at Curry Village
Paige works some magic with a marshmallow
The fire at Curry Village Lodge
We sit around the fire and chat
He was just waiting to bolt through the door. Sneaky bugger.
Morning view from our cabin - waterfalls below Glacier Point
It's a dull, rainy day.
Our cozy and dry cabin
We went for brunch at the Ahwahnee
This was plate number two...
And the remnants of plate number one.
Don't forget dessert
It may be a grey and rainy day, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
