... country and the cooler air. Leaving Cathedral Lakes, we climbed only about 500 feet to get over Cathedral Pass. We dropped a little in elevation to top out again to 9700 feet. From there it was all downhill into Yosemite Valley. We had decided, however, to just hike into Little Yosemite Valley before Nevada Falls. I was sad to see about 3 miles of the JMT on the way down burned up. This is not the JMT that I remembered from 2011. Apparently there was a fire here (the Meadow Fire) ...

... some high cirrus clouds. Hmmm?! Sure enough, by 11am, dark clouds began to loom over the mountains. I was worried I'd get rain and/or snow in the pass. As usual with passes, the higher I climbed the more snow and frozen lakes I encountered. The trail was covered in parts by snow. That entailed post-holing my was thru occasionally.

... 40 years. He took us to a number of different habitats so that we could see a variety of Yosemite's resident and migrant birds. It was surprising to see how colourful many of them were - there are 11 types of woodpeckers, we mostly saw the acorn woodpeckers. The Western tanagers were orange and yellow as is the Black-headed Grosbeak, the Northern Oriole is a bright orange, stellar jays are dark ...
