Buena Vista TR (8/14-8/16/20)
August 23, 2020 04:01PM
I got a much later start than planned on Friday afternoon, which compromised the rest of my weekend in terms of where I camped each night. Probably wouldn't have mattered as much earlier in the season, but I wanted to keep my last day under 10 miles and there weren't many camping options in that window due to lack of water.

The trailhead was in the Bridalveil Campground, however that's closed, so it meant parking on Glacier Pt Rd and walking an extra mile to the "start." Still, I enjoyed the trip- saw some new parts of Yosemite, got some cool night photos, and escaped the house for a few days.

The Saturday night storm didn't impact me too much other than high winds trying to blow down my shelter. At the time, I enjoyed seeing all the lightning flashes in the distance, but on the way home I realized what that storm had set in motion.

Love the photos, that area has been (and remains) on my get-to list for several years now. Thanks for posting.
