Yosemite Camping Trip: Pam-sel Adams (a.k.a.walking in the footsteps of Ansel Adams)

Last week the hubs and I went camping at Yosemite National Park !
We’ve been a few times but had to go back….and guess what?  I brought my camera!

This is our super cute little tent cabin….
with our ‘bear box’ out front.  
(Everything with a scent – from chapstick to food
 has to be placed inside the bear locker!)
That was the amazing view from the back window of my tent….!~
And this is where I drank my morning coffee and ate my donut each morning.
(Yes it was BYO-donuts!)
Spotted this cutie pie in the parking lot…
We were walking out from dinner one evening and spotted this in the parking lot too:
(Is that the most amazing puddle reflection you’ve ever seen?)

So I grabbed my camera and ran for the meadow while the sun was still shining on the mountain……. half dome in the sunset!

Everywhere we went we were amazed at the beauty….

There was beauty everywhere – but there wasn’t much water.
Most of the waterfalls and ‘rushing rapids’ were dry…..so sad to see…..
And one afternoon I signed up for a photography seminar called 
“In the footsteps of Ansel Adams” it was wonderful!

We visited some of his favorite spots for portraits.
(I’m including a few of Ansel’s portraits so you can compare – his pics are small and mine are LARGE so you can tell us apart!)

The tree in the middle of the meadow is one of the few remaining oak trees that Ansel Adams 
actually photographed!

We saw evidence of the fires from a few years back….

And did you know Speeding Kills Bears?  Makes sense to me!

And one last sunset as we head for home!

Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter.
