Yosemite Picture Blog

Some Mushrooms that we saw at the base of a tree. I have no idea what kind they are so we just took some pictures and walked on.

Kaarina can just barely fit into this stump! So much fun to see holes in the bottoms of trees you can fit through.

The four pictures above is when we were on our way to see the giant sequoia. We hiked through the wood’s and saw some fungus growing at the bottom of a pine tree. My husband and youngest kept going while my oldest and middle stayed with me.. You can guess what we had to do, to catch up we had to run up the path! This happened more than a couple times because there were a lot of distractions for me. So I had to constantly catch up with my family. One distraction were the mushrooms in the above picture. Then we kept finding some interesting plant life, for instance trees with hollows at the bottoms to explore, chattering squirrels that we had find and see, and some interesting rock formations.

This was taken on our way back down to the van.
The sunset walking back to our vehicle!
The car was moving while I took this photo! I love how the tree’s branches are framing the waterfall though.
Waterfalls are so beautiful!
A sharp curve warning sign. Going down to see some sequoia tree’s!
This is the curve in the road the sign indicates is coming up. This road is no longer used for driving. But it is a nice walk to bring kids on. L
It is tiny because it was so far away but I captured a woodpecker pecking for its meal.
The shadow is not allowing the burnt tree stump to shine in this picture but it was a beautiful sight to see.
This tree was hollowed and we were able to walk hunched over through the whole tree!
The contrast between the old and the new.

I have a whole mess of other photos on my camera I am hoping to post at some point. If I forgot don’t hesitate to ask. I sometimes forget what needs to happen! Raising kids keeps me pretty busy.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

    Factories don’t make oxygen. Trees do. Respect nature.

    In short, I love photos featuring magnificent trees full of character, and I often wonder what species of trees they belong to.
