Yosemite National Park - Birding & Sightseeing

June 12, 2010

What a glorious Saturday in Yosemite National Park!

Yosemite Valley panoramic from Tunnel View

I spent the day birding with the Fresno Audubon Society field trip; walking several of the trails along the Merced River in Yosemite Valley, lunch while birding the Foresta Road area (very successful), and then I drove to the upper elevations (7000-8000 feet) along Glacier Point Road.
