    by wildography Written Mar 20, 2004

    if you get stupid when hiking or climbing in Yosemite... you could die!!! (if your lucky, maybe just a few broken bones)

    ...and don't FEED the deer (the only wildlife caused fatality in Yosemite IN RECORDED HISTORY is when a kid tried to feed, and pet, an adult BUCK Mule deer... he died)

Yosemite Village Off The Beaten Path

  • wildography's Profile Photo

    only a resident knows...

    by wildography Updated Mar 20, 2004

    Imagine the crowds on July 4th weekend.... there are thousands of people EVERYWHERE....


    for those places that only the employees and residents know...

    To avoid the masses:

    - visit the WEST end of the Valley
    - see Indian Caves; Devil's Elbow; Indian Swamp; El Cap beach; Leidig meadow; Hidden Falls (hint: THIS one you will NEVER find without help! ); the Valley Loop trail, west end; Sentinel Creek... and more....
    - visit the "high country"

    ... and, of course there are lots of isolated spots for romantic interludes, a quiet picnic, a place to contemplate, to do whatever you like!
