Mammoth Lakes to Yosemite

Fourth of July was a Thursday, and we went to Mammoth Lakes town near Yosemite national park. The town itself is a lovely ski resort and had wonderful scenery all around it. The next morning we drove to Yosemite through the Tioga road, which is a two and a half hours by itself. The road is quite scenic all the way, and then we saw the first falls after the intersection with Hwy 140. But the Bridal Veil Falls was the magnificent scene, and although you don't see the falls themselves, you see me coming back from there in the picture. The temperature was in the nineties, during the day, but in the evening is cool in the sixties. Some of the things you see there are: High Sierra, Granite Cliffs, Sequoia Groves, Half Dome and the Valley. Nice lakes and rivers, and scenic hiking trails everywhere. It is a beautiful place to visit, but as usual one day there is hardly enough. Camping there would be nice. Maybe next time.
