Chick-On's 1954 Valley Map
August 26, 2012 11:12AM
Hey Chick-On, would you mind posting the link to the 1954 map again. That’s when I was 10 years old and my brother and I used to roam the valley. Our family used to camp in Camp 4 for two weeks every summer. (At that time Camp 4 was the only campground where you could have a dog.) You just drove off the road until you found a flat spot you liked near a picnic table and pitched a tent. No marked campsites like today. I remember one skinny rock climber named Royal (I thought the name was funny then) who used to scramble up that big bolder in Camp 4. After 53 years away from Yosemite, I started camping in the valley again. Makes me wonder why I stayed away for so long. .

Don't you mean a nine day carry?

No, it'll be nine days of road crossings.

Well, Chick-on has the best memory of his stuff, but you can browse through his collection here:

http://picasaweb.google.com/103089501068510688008/YoseMaps?gsessionid=tCUF8CziFZsc2zC7VnlHKg

It's not indexed by date, though. You might look at #s 104, 148, 268, and 392.

You can get a 1976 version by going here and putting in "Yosemite Valley":

and a 1934 version here:

I just hope he doesn't wear the mountains down to sea level with all his peregrinations.

Thanks for the info, I'll repost in about a week. I'd really like to have a copy of that map.
