Wish I had some photos to post from this last weekend, but I got halfway up the Mist Trail and turned on my camera to take a pic... "No memory card"

Bummer. Where'd u end up?

We ended up poking around Wawona area around Big Trees and some other bits and bobs... marking off some trails that Z Old Dood has left.
Personally I really like Wawona area. But it's not super peek-chur-esq. Wawona campground loops by the river are nice.
There's even a couple of Indian Mortar rocks examples.

V. kewl photos. The lake nearby is also very nice... I'll have to find that photo..

I've never been to Wawona... or the south entrance for that matter...

Went up to Merced Lake. I was originally gonna take Monday off and go over Red Peak Pass, but I was lazy on Saturday and only made it about 8-10 miles in. I camped by the Bunnell footbridge. I tried to make up some distance on Sunday morning but only got to Merced Lake at 11AM with another 18 miles and 4000 ft to get to Ottoway... then it would have been 26 miles the next day back via Illilouette. Ended up just turning around and hiking out on Sunday.

I must have been in some weird time warp for driving... 2:45 to the TH on Saturday morning and 3:15 back on Sunday. Normally it's like 4 and a half hours for me. I wasn't even driving that fast.

Whoa. 2:45! You musta been going about 90 the whole way. From SJ it's just about spot on 3 hrs to BOF entrance.

I never speed in the park. Rangers were out on the prowl at Crane Flat 25 Zone this weekend.

Honestly have no idea how I got there that fast but I pulled out of my driveway at 5:38 and was showing my Parks Pass a little after 9:00. Wait, I just realized I can't do math... 3 hours 45 minutes to the TH... not 2 hours 45 min. Nevermind...

I expected more snow. This is not helping me in my debate as to whether or not to lug my 6lbs of snowshoes over thanksgiving.
