I was able to spend three days in Yosemite this Spring. It was a glorious visit. The Valley is not the same these later years as it was in the seventies, when I spend years and years living and climbing in one most exquisite places on Earth. It is much more crowned and congested, but the glory of the Valley is still present. My son, Dylan, was there for Search and Rescue training, and we had access to a private campground for NPS park employees. The Valley was greener that I could remember, the meadows were amazing.
