Eavesdropping on Yosemite

This is a fun one to share with anyone who can’t make it over to Yosemite on a daily basis to drink in the beauty of Half Dome,

Yosemite Falls, El Capitan, and the High Country.  Yosemite Conservancy.Org has web cams situated around the park in four place.

You can see what the light looks in this amazing place at different times of the day. Just a click and you’re on a virtual vacation without the mosquitoes.

Very calming. And cheap.

Here’s the proof: The first two are from around nine this morning, the third from the other day. Have fun. Don’t sprain an ankle!

  1. Enjoyed seeing these very much! Many years ago I backpacked into the high country there and spent a couple nights under the stars. A bear came through camp the second night (in the middle of the night!) and took all our food, which we had not hung high enough. We hiked out 10 miles the next morning on empty stomachs…. an unforgettable experience!

    • You bet, who could forget a bear sniffing around close to your tent?! Now you can click on the webcam enjoy the high county while you eat a great meal. Take that you bears.
      Thanks for stopping by, Anita. I enjoy visiting your site for you latest artwork.

      • Love it!!! Those bears have excruciatingly bad breath!! I speak from experience– yes, that bear was just on the other side of our tent flap in the middle of the night checking us out : )

  2. What a reality check on your place in the food chain! Now when one goes overnight into most of the parks, a bear canister is required to store your food in. The good ones the bears can’t smell what’s inside and if they do they can’t open them. It actually helps me sleep easier when I am out, knowing that I am very uninteresting to a bear if there is no junk food to be had. Just place them a couple of hundred feet away from camp and sweet dreams.

    Just make sure you don’t place the canister close to a drop off in case the bear gets frustrated and knocks your food over the cliff!!
