Yosemite – day 3

We parked at our first opportunity, unloaded the bikes and rode to Yosemite Fall.IMG_0412As we walked closer to the fall, we heard singing. A choir of Japanese students put on an impromptu 2-song performance – it was beautiful.IMG_0415IMG_0419More riding, to Half Dome Village, which used to be called Curry Village. There are more than 400 tent cabins here – they look HOT to me.DSC01838Rafters are assisted into the slow-moving river by a park employee – it was clear (and funny) that some rafters had never put an oar in water.DSC01835DSC01841We drove to Glacier Point, above the valley. The views were amazing.
