Rise and shine early next morning to try capture sunrise over Mono Lake.
our motel - a good catch at a good price

The ghost town of Bodie
2nd largest city in California back in 1879...now abandoned.
shaft elevator machinery
peeking inside the church
the hotel, and the I.O.O.F. Hall
the hotel bar
the gas station
steam drive saw
with good size teeth!
these buildings still endure winter and snow, every year
some life in Bodie (movie file)
Back on the road again - west, towards Yosemite
view across the Yosemite valley from The Vernal Falls
Vernal Falls beneath
what our little friends wouldn't do for a peanut
a steep climb - and wet - towards The Upper Vernal Falls
ah well, carry on up
-Hey, look who's here again!
But what's the story about your finger?
party of three on the rocks
Above the falls, water runs across the large, flat rock.
watch the size of this flat (movie file)
Back down...leaving Yosemite and Half Dome behind.
along windy roads back to the Bay Area
