Sep 6: Arriving in Yosemite
After overnighting in San Francisco, I had to do some more trains, planes and automobiles.
Or a BART tube ride, then an AMTRAK train to Merced, and from there a big busrid to Yosemite Valley.
Finally, we enter the Valley. Slowly the hills become mountains, and the sheer granite cliffs start appearing.
And then all of a sudden you are in it. The huge vertical cliffs.I am like a school kid in a bus. Going from one side to the other, taking pictures, gawking away. WOW.
and then El Capitan appears. It is HUGE. I think "There is no way I am going near that one!". A little later Half Dome appears.
