Days 14 & 15

Drove from Kingsburg, CA to Yosemite with stop in Fresno for provisions. Pretty road into Yosemite - - hilly and somewhat curvy, but pretty smooth with lots of turnouts to let faster traffic go by. Yosemite can only be described as spectacular. Kerry, Charlie & Gena took advantage of the free shuttle on Tuesday to make the valley floor loop and go to the visitors center. Bob stayed with Milo (No dogs allowed on the shuttle). In the PM we took Kerry's van around the loop and walked up to Bridalvail Falls. Then stopped at a pullout with a good view of El Capitan - - got to see two guys climbing the wall, maybe 1200-1300 feet up. They made NO progress while we watched. After a great dinner of hamburgers, three of us played Phase 10 - - Charlie won!
