Revisiting Tuolumne Meadow

Standard

Now that I am back home in Maine, I have some time to revisit the glorious first evening of our trip to Yosemite when we were fortunate to witness some amazing colors and clouds over the higher mountains in the backdrop. Afternoon thunderstorms have been known to unexpectedly pop up in this area, and on this occasion we were in the right place at the right time. The storm had begun to clear right before sunset, and as the twilight gained a hold on the scene, we enjoyed some deep and rich pastel colors. We fought off mosquitoes as big as small birds, but it was well worth the effort to experience such an incredible sunset. The four days Sam and I spent up along the Tioga Road and near Tuolumne Meadow wasn’t nearly enough time to truly see the landscape, so maybe someday we will return and spend some extended time exploring what was for us a unique and breathtaking area.

      Carol… thanks. On our last trip when we went to Death Valley we did a book… came out great! Maybe we will again this time.

      David… thanks. This was truly a special trip. We got to see some of the most beautiful and striking landscapes I have ever seen. When are you coming back to Acadia?

        Unfortunately it may not be until next year. We have some friends that have offered a place to stay in Lubec and we hope to take them up on it in spring.

I'd love to hear from you...
