Our last day in Yosemite. Drove to Glacier Point – at over 7200 feet it afforded amazing views over Yosemite. It was fantastic to see Vernal and Nevada waterfalls that we had hiked to on Sunday. The 3000 feet sheer drop into Yosemite Valley was amazing.
Being Spring, there were lots of wild flowers. I had seen some strange red flowers on the roadside, only a few, they were Snow Plants and apparently only grow in a few areas in Yosemite. I spotted one on our walk:
Taft Point was another fantastic viewpoint. We stood on the edge of the sheer drop and just soaked up the scenery.
The car needed fuel, urgently, so we drove the 35 miles down to the nearest town and filled the car, then ourselves. Found a lovely steakhouse!
Back to the B and B, polish off the wine, then pack. Heading west to the coast tomorrow.
