We had time to hit a couple more spots in Yosemite before heading to camp at Crane Flat. We hit the Olmsted Point and Dome across the street to take in some nice views and then eat lunch. From there it was down to Tuolumne Grove to see the big trees for the first time. We had to wait a couple minutes to park but the crowd wasn't to bad. We did see 3 or 4 people trying to carry out Sugar Pine pine cones. Guess they didn't see the signs.... We got a little rain while here. The trees were awesome. On the hike back up we got to talk to a nice young Lady Ranger all the way back to the car. I think some people thought we were getting escorted out :) . I was impressed. She answered every question and had done lots of cool hikes in the park. From there it was off to an early night to bed.

Quick trip up Pothole Dome. Took the trail farther past it than previously before climbing up. Nice as always. After, we had a little fun out on Olmsted Point on our way to White Wolf.

Instead of fighting the other tourists, we ventured across the road and climbed up the granite on the north side. Better views, fewer people, and a pathetic bit of exercise. I'm embarrassed to have posted a GPS track for this!

We stopped at Olmsted Point to enjoy the views of Clouds Rest and Half Dome. While at the stop, Cheryl and I hiked to the nearby dome right across the street. There were some excellent views of Tenaya Lake and other parts of Yosemite.

Wonderful views. Tioga Pass just opened so no one around.
